Organics are hot. What to do with them is fast becoming our industry’s biggest challenge. It is also the most elusive. Just defining which materials are "organic" can be maddening. Do we mean only food and yard waste or should we include other products including unrecycled paper products, such as towels, cups, tissues, wood pallets and even diapers and cat litter? If we take the former approach, about 30 percent of the waste stream is organic; with a more expansive definition, more than half of...
