Trash collectors in San Francisco will soon be doing more than just gathering garbage: They'll be keeping an eye out for people who toss food scraps out with their rubbish.

San Francisco this week passed a mandatory composting law that is believed to be the strictest such ordinance in the nation. Residents will be required to have three color-coded trash bins, including one for recycling, one for trash and a new one for compost — everything from banana peels to coffee grounds.

I used to live in California and now realize I'm much happier living in any of the 49 other states. At least in Texas I (still) have the freedom to not compost if I don't want to. I firmly believe that if California repealed 90% of their laws, they could have a budget surplus this year.

It is so ironic that California has considered everyone else so backward for years and now they are begging for our money to fix their problems.

I don't think all of thier money problems came from some of their forward thinking, environmentally sound ideas.

We can all be organic and environmentally responsible without the government stealing our money and using it to enforce certain behavior.
