Employ youth in bicycle fleet of waste collectors with trips to a community anaerobic digester
Instead of relying on huge diesel trucks to pick up households' trash and bring it to the dump, create an organization that employs youth to collect compost on bicycles and transport the material to a tower-sized decomposer. This way, the impact is two-fold: not only will there be a positive outlet for teenagers and a means of earning an income (the respective community would use money saved from transporting via trucks to pay a small stipend to participants), but there will also be a way to harness food waste into a renewable energy source.
A prime example of this is to adopt the Vermont Technical Community College's Community Anaerobic Digester model with the Portland Fruit Tree Gleaning model.
Let's continue to evolve the bicycle!
