<<My city does not ... but even if they did, I would not be donating my
scrap paper to them. I would still compost it, as I do now. My reading on
composting tells me to rely on a hot compost pile and a long aging cycle
(at least 1 year) to detoxify darn near anything that might get dumped
into the pile. Even diesel fuel, PCB's and DDT vanish (IIRC, PCB's need 2
years aging). >>
So....your compost heap/unit is self contained, sealed off from the groundwater?

to dispatch all the contaminants it is likely to see in normal use.
It's not a fetish, it's a garden on the edge of a major city.
