Green Ideas: Gorilla Composting

Green Guerillas. Treehugger has recently posted a great piece about Gorilla Composting—an effort of some McGill students to improve McGill's Green ranking with the help of some nifty branding. A $5 annual membership gets you a plastic bucket to bring your (approved) waste to a communal heap. Eventually, Gorilla Composting would like to be able to sell the compost back to the university for use on the grounds. If an urban campus in Montreal can begin to implement the un-urban process of composting, we wonder how similar ideas could be implemented in New York City? By building? Neighborhood? Are they already there and we're clueless? What about rats? We imagine there are some community gardens that compost, right?
