Letters: Digest food waste

Sooke letter writer thinks Berlin has good plan for waste

Garbage: Berlin has done away with its blue box program because too much was going to the dump. It’s now sorted and the food waste is put into a digester and made into gas. The plant and its vehicles run on gas, and all the garbage trucks. No two pickups a week. Almost no waste material goes to the dump.

This is a win-win situation. If Berlin can do it, then Greater Victoria can do it.

We don’t need to hire an engineer to have study at millions of dollars, it works.

Sewage: Why are we using the ocean as a dump, for all the fish and shellfish to feed on it? Treat it, bag it, sell it. It’s fertilizer.

A lot of other countries and states are doing it. So why not us? But, I can bet it will never happen here because it just makes sense.

I thought we were past the Ice Ages. Millions are spent on studies, etc., to no end. This is already in use.
