    Composting when you have a garden space or a decent sized apartment is easy (and quite joyful); having to take your food scraps to a single electronic appliance by the bins at the bottom of a 40 storey block of apartments is anything but joyful.
    Well have you ever tried it?! Give it a bloody go before slamming it, and this system IS a way to provide a means given the living conditions. Bringing my foodwaste to the village location wasn't "fun" either, but neither is carrying trash to a communal area -- boohoo life is a hard as an adult.

    You say lack of infrastructure, but this is indeed a kind of infrastructure!

    We are quite well served in my district with one composter per 40,000 people, although the nearest government food compost bin is a 4 km return journey for me.

    I would not say this is the best infrastructure possible, indeed, I feel it may be lacking.
