Composting Has Arrived!

Starting this month, Brisbane residents can put items like fruit and vegetable peels, leftovers, napkins and pizza boxes into the green cart, along with yard trimmings.  Now offering weekly green cart collection, South San Francisco Scavenger Company will convert the materials into transportation fuel and compost at their new anaerobic digestion facility.

Over the next two weeks, each household will receive a food scrap pail and detailed information about the new program, on their regular collection day.  

To ensure that the anaerobic digestion process produces high quality fuel and compost, only food, food soiled paper and yard trimmings should go into the green cart.  Contaminants such as plastics, including plastic bags and “bio bags,” glass, metal or any other non-compostable materials interfere with the process and must be kept out of the green cart.  The food scrap collection allows residents to recycle a wide range of materials, including some that can’t be readily composted in backyard compost bins, such as meat, bones, paper plates and milk cartons.

Thanks for helping to do your part!

Feeding Cats at the Pool

The feeding of three cats during the time the Pool is closed (January - early March of 2015) had been brought to the City's attention from several concerned citizens.  Parks and Recreation Director, Stuart Schillinger, reached out to these citizens explaining that first, there was a change in State law effective 1/1/2015 regarding animals at public pools and ancillary facilities in that they are not to be permitted at these facilities (except in the case of service animals).  Of course, with the pool being outdoors, we can't so much prevent the cats from entering the pool area (or birds for that matter).  So, in an effort to still feed the cats and follow the new law, Stuart, Ben (our new Pool Manager), and Karen (our engineer in charge of construction), thought that the best idea was to move the cats' food bowls to just outside the fenced in area towards Lipman field.  The bowls should still be close enough for the cats who visit the pool to find the food.  The citizens who are most concerned with the welfare of the cats were contacted by Stuart and feel this is the best solution at the moment.  If you have any other ideas or concerns, please contact Stuart at 508-2151.  Thanks all for your concern for the cats...and know their bellies will still be full.
