Why is the Town implementing this ban?

It's estimated that food scraps and recycling are the most significant material that could be diverted from garbage that goes to landfill in the non-residential sector. Food scraps and recycling do not break down in the landfill and cause harmful methane emissions that are over 30 times more powerful than C02.
