I really don't understand how anybody considers this a victory? Because he wasn't forced to get rid of his front yard garden, rain barrels and pond? The fact that he has to remove ALL 24 of his worm bins which keep restaurant vegetable scraps out of the landfill is a huge loss. The fact that he has to remove tires he keeps out of the landfill by using them as planters is a huge loss. There is a difference in keeping old tires in your yard and repurposing tires into planters. And according to the podcast interview with Adam, now that media attention is off this issue, he expects to be given more orders that could relate to the biodiesel production. I know stories feel better with happy endings but this does not seem like a happy ending to me. I hope that Adam considers fighting these orders.
