A new recycling program in New York City will process 100,000 tons of food-waste a year (10% of all food-waste produced in New York) and turn it into bio-gas for electricity, Think Progress reports.

The program initiated by Mayor Bloomberg’s office will reduce the costs of waste management and its strain on landfills while creating cheap green energy. Landfills already produce tons Methane gas, which will now be directed for good use.
