New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced a plan to penalize New Yorkers who do not compost food waste.

Nanny Mike, who has outlawed consumption of large soft drinks and smoking outdoors, has an ambitious plan to handle 100,000 tons of food scraps a year and convert residential food waste into biogas for electricity generation, according to the New York Times.

Biogas is a trendy alternative to conventional fuel used to generate electricity. In addition to the inefficiency of biogas, it is more expensive than other biofuels.

Moreover, sanitation officials in America’s largest city consider New York too dense and vertically structured for such a policy to succeed.

For now, Bloomberg’s program will be voluntary. New York, however, eventually plans to make it mandatory. Cities around the country, including San Francisco and Seattle, are currently mandating citizen participation in food recycling programs.

San Francisco’s Mandatory Recycling and Composting Ordinance fines building owners if they do not provide blue, green, and black bins and information on their proper use, according to the SFEnviroment web page.

Michael Bloomberg’s nanny state initiative has increased momentum recently. In addition to soft drinks and smoking, New York City’s bureaucrats are attempting to restrict pain medication, purportedly in response to a national epidemic of prescription drug abuse.

“Michael Bloomberg believes the government and its sprawling and ineffectual bureaucracy is far better suited to make patient decisions than doctors and medical professionals,” we reported in January. “Bloomberg’s soda ban and his vendetta against law-abiding firearms owners once again reveals the insatiable drive of government to micromanage and control all aspects of human behavior and further extend its reach into the private affairs of citizen-subjects.”

In May, Bloomberg moved to restrict consumption decisions of citizens.
