Waribashi and compost

I don't know if you remember that the Japantown Center (shopping mall) did not have a recycling program in place because it was voluntary in 2005 while I was doing the Waribashi Project in San Francisco. Today, however, all businesses are required to compost by city law. I wonder what effect this will have on the businesses there, how easily they will find it to comply (and compost waribashi) now that it is the law. At the time of the project, chopsticks were going into the trash and smashed in one of their 3 trash compactors and headed straight for the landfill. Maybe this will change....
