City to build biowaste plant in east end

The city has plans to build a biowaste plant in the east end, which makes me wonder just how much of our “compost” gets composted and used on growing things. Considering the amount of crappy stuff people put in their recycling, I’m not sure how much I’d trust materials from a big city being used to fertilize fields for agriculture. Using the material for energy, if it can be done cleanly, makes more sense.
