6:05 pm
member of the family that got vaccinated today. they got a free pass for the whole family to go inside the museum. they could go in right after their shot, or they could save it for the next six months. we know that it's very hard for kids to get the courage to take a shot, and we thought, well, why couldn't we do something wonderful and say if you get your shot you'll get to treat your whole family to a day at children's discovery museum. the clinic is part of a larger push right now to get kids vaccinated and tested before school starts. on monday, governor gavin newsom agreed to provide schools with enough at home rapid tests for all k through 12 students. that's around six million, and schools across the bay area are rushing to give them out. like at this drive thru in alameda on friday. we want this to be replicated throughout the 58 counties in our state, and throughout all the districts in our state and to continue to provide our schools with the resources that they need. to keep our children safe and to keep our students in school

6:07 pm
state in the nation has implemented such a law and ktvu greg liggins joins us now to explain how it works. correct. yes, andre. in a nutshell. compliance should be pretty simple. you should no longer throw food waste in the trash. you've probably thrown food scraps from items like these into the trash or garbage disposal, but what you've been getting rid of has value food scraps like your eggshells and coffee grounds and your vegetable peelings. those are the most important type. of garbage that exists. that's where the nutrients are. beginning this year, california has enacted a statewide law to keep food scraps out of landfills. instead they will need to be composted and collected curbside. california has passed a policy now. requiring all cities and counties in the state to reduce the amount. of compostable material that they send to landfills by 75% by the year
6:08 pm
2025. that's in three years you'll need to separate food, waste from trash and place it in those green bins. open that up something san franciscans have done for 25 years. waste management company rick ology, which focuses on recycling, spearheaded the change, which california has now adopted. part of the reason is to help the environment if food scraps go to a landfill, and they get buried in a landfill, they can create methane gas, a potent greenhouse gasses can escape to the atmosphere. the food waste eventually becomes compost that can be mixed with soil as seen in these piles at a site in southern california. it's valuable material used in agriculture. farmers say it's nutrient rich increases stable carbon levels in soil and saves water it allows infiltrate held and then importantly, accomplished as a very friendly way that it delivers water to the roots of plants compared to other structures in the store
6:09 pm
health so applying complex destroyed huge advantage, ecology says in san francisco alone, it's kept 2.5 million tons of food waste out of landfills, the tops of your carrots, the peelings off your onions. the brown leaves off the end of the lettuce, the coffee grounds of banana peels. all these things came from a farm. they ought to go back to a farm. in the form of compost. now, some california cities and counties are still working out their plans to collect that food waste. the grace period is up to two years, but i'm told, most should be able to work out those plans within a few months. andre alright, greg. lisa was reporting. chris live in oakland. greg. thank you. twitter takes action against conservative congresswoman marjorie taylor green coming up why her account was permanently suspended today and it was a routine traffic stop in the east bay but ended up with police calling in the bomb squad. coming up when officers found inside the car that raised alarm. already and back to the
