  2. Lots of good news, JoAnna. I’ve been following the news here in Los Angeles about California’s new food waste recycling program that supposedly went into effect on January 1st. At the apartment complex where we live, we’ve received no news from our landlord about this new mandate. A green waste bin is not yet available.
