Skip to comments.Bloomberg Plan Aims To Require Food Composting
Posted on 06/17/2013 4:44:26 AM PDT by Biggirl
Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, who has tried to curb soda consumption, ban smoking in parks and encourage bike riding, is taking on a new cause: requiring New Yorkers to separate their food scraps for composting.

Just a few more steps to utopia.
RATS the size of DOGS.....Well, it IS a RAT CITY!!
The guy really is nuts. Why does he want to control every aspect of everyone’s life?
He really is a recurring nightmare.
Let’s just say that Mayor Bloomberg has “lost it”.
This guy is demented.
Worrying about ridiculous things like this when people are dropping like flies of late by gunfire.
Because he knows what's best for us. (sarcasm)
Not sure he ever had it.
Well, yes. The socialism and communism of America does not concern him. The police-state NSA eavesdropping worries him not a whit. He could care less about urban mob violence directed against whites. The horrific US debt-to-income ratio troubles him not. He does not care about the administration running guns to Mexican drug cartels. Talk about Obama stepping on the Constitution troubles him not.
So I guess Bloomberg DOES stay out of certain matters. I stand corrected.
What about all that nasty carbon based methane gas that composting produces?
I don't know that he ever "had" it, at least when it comes to governing. Bloomie had one good business idea, once. He's has had an awful lot of bad ideas since then.
I’m sure Bloomie composts every scrap of food he throws out whenever he’s staying at his estate in Bermuda: http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2010/04/bloomberg.html
This is already happening in England. There are towns where the local council is requiring upwards of 7 or 8 bins- and heaven help you if you sort things into the wrong container. Fines and no trash pick up til you sort it properly. Makes you wonder why Bloomberg doesn’t just emigrate....
I am sure the Harlemites will comply/s
I have no idea what the guy has accomplished in his life.
Don't really care either.
Require separate toilets for each bodily function.
Require New Yorkers pray towards Gracie Mansion six (which is one more than five) times a day.
Outlaw pig Latin as anti-Semitic.
New York light fixtures must be replaced with ones where the bulbs screw in counterclockwise.
Water heaters must have a maximum temperature of 98.5 degrees.
No dogs over 20 pounds.
All New York phone calls must be routed to the NYPD instead of the NSA.
Dogs may only play canasta or bridge in artwork in New York.
Any television shows broadcast in New York must be redubbed if they say people are standing “in line” rather than proper New Yorkese “on line”.
In that case composting is even more important.
HAHAHA. Can’t wait to see composters in those tiny studio apartments.
Change the name of NYC to DISTRICT 13 (read “Mockingjay”)
Bloomie would be happy to have uber-control over sloppy selfish greedy obese citizens
In related news, Bloomberg has bought the old Wham-O factory in the Bronx, the one which used to make Hula-Hoops. He plans to begin manufacturing as soon as the equipment is refurbished.
The Mayor was quoted as saying, "One can NEVER have too many hoops for New Yorkers to jump through."
A sure sign that Mayor Bloomberg is fading fast.
No problem. Toss the garbage in the alley and let it rot.
Hey Bloomey the Garbage Disposer was invented in 1927.
And the sheeple go along with it.
You know what the funny thing is?
Garbage disposals are OUTLAWED in NYC because the garbage collectors’ union thought they would negatively impact their business.
Ah... government... is there anything it can’t do?
I’m sure that this will provide meaningful work for all the residents of his re-education camps.
“RATS the size of DOGS.....”
That’s just ridiculous.
The maggots will have the rats down to bones before they’re much bigger than a cat.
That said - it shouldnt be mandated by govt, implemented by union hacks and paid for on the backs of joe citizen
Good Lord at the bacteria that will breed!! Do they disinfect the garbage cans for collection each time?
Super monster bacteria dead ahead.
Oh and rats bigger than your head.
I just made a composting rhyme.
Yeah, if they’d ALLOW disposers, they could put a digester in at the local water treatment plant and do it MUCH more efficiently,
AND they could use the natural gas (methane) produced in the digesting process to produce electricity to run the water treatment plant.
But NOOOOOO.... the garbage unions got the city gov’t to outlaw disposers.
what they don’t have garbage disposals in New York?
Grey, General waste.
Green, Mixed recycling.
Brown, Garden waste.
Dark green, Food waste.
What colours can you bring to the party? :)
Los Angeles Times, October 12, 1997
N.Y. garbage disposal ban lifted
He exactly represents the majority of New Yorkers. They're nuts, and they want to control every aspect of everyone's life especially us unenlightened peasants who live in fly over country.
Not insane. Just 100% liberal. Liberalism often is hard to distinguish from insanity.
And the FIRST thing to compost should be His Dishonor!
A cousin of mine and her husband have a cabin in the California costal mountains. At one time they considered installing a composting toilet until further research revealed such things are essentially updated outhouses that require endless servicing and urning of the waste. Bloomturd has come up with an equally pie in the sky idea.
And what is Bloomturd going to do with it once he has collected it???? I’m sorry, in the country or suburbs where it will be used it’s compost, in NYC it’s still garbage. Who will want it by the truck and barge full? It will wind up in the landfill, after giving a bunch of rats green jobs to sort through it and Bloomturd the sick satisfaction that he has gotten the ciotizens to comply with one of his edicts.
People should save their food garbage for a few weeks to let it get really stinky and ship it to his office.
Because he is a typical leftist elite liberal who, by ideology, wants to control people’s lives because his view of his own self-importance is so warped that he thinks he knows what is best for everyone else. This guy has a little Napoleon complex and massages his narcissistic ego by finding pleasure in telling others what to do in their personal lives. But he is just one little man. I blame the people of New York who vote him into office, for enabling his boorish behavior.
Even when liberals come to completely rational conclusions,
we often see them as “insane” because their starting point from which they reason is flawed and 100% upside down.
Bloomberg looks at the Utopia that is San Francisco and follows it’s lead.
a homeless people’s smorgasboard, food composting bins.. Bloomy really cares, y’know.
I agree. Liberals are by definition crazy.
Mixed recycling? In your dreams! There’s the black bin for glass and tins, the blue bin for newspapers, the blue bag for cardboard and the orange for plastics. If Bloomberg gets wind of the scheme, NYers will find themselves up to their armpits in rubbish receptacles....
