Film screenings online to mark composting mandate

In honor of San Francisco’s new mandate to recycle and compost waste, three Web sites will be continuously streaming the documentary “SCRAPHOUSE: San Francisco.”

The documentary was filmed in San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza in 2005, when architects spent six weeks constructing structurally sound single-family homes using only scrap, recycled and salvaged materials.

The movie will stream for 24 hours straight on Wednesday, from 12:00 to 11:59, to “help introduce” San Francisco’s new Universal Recycling and Composting Ordinance, which requires residents to recycle and compost or face warnings or even, eventually, fines. The film will be streamed on on three different Web sites:

  • http://www.greenplanetfilms.org/scraphouse.htm
  • http://www.scraphouse.org
  • http://www.sfstation.com/city/  

Viewers will not only have the chance to relive the environmental feat, but could wind up one step ahead in their efforts to comply with the new ordinance, if they win a contest whose prize is an in-home composting machine.
