What happens to all those food scraps collected on city curbsides?

Find out in my feature for The New York Times Magazine, “The Compost King,” which follows a brash former trash hauler who reinvented himself as a compost tycoon and then — he fervently hopes — into a producer of sustainable energy.

Interesting story in NYU’s ScienceLine, by Eleanor Cummins, on where finished compost ends up — or doesn’t, if you are a small producer in an urban setting. It’s great to support the diversion of food waste from landfills, but then what? Markets, baby, markets.
