NYC Restaurant Challenge: Recycle All Food Waste04:09

This article is more than 6 years old.

New York City is one of a handful of cities that is working to keep food waste out of landfills.

This year, 100 of the city's 24,000 restaurants signed on to the city's voluntary pilot program and committed to recycle their food scraps.

Now, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has introduced legislation to the city council to mandate the City's largest restaurants to separate their food waste by 2014, but the head of the New York State Restaurant Association worries that the infrastructure is not available to do this.
