    HOUSTON, Texas -- A Houston company takes what most people would consider trash and turns it into a useful treasure. Moonshot Compost takes food waste and turns it into nutrient rich compost. They want people to think of excess food as a resource not as trash. Between 30 and 40 percent of food produced never makes it to a dining table instead, it ends up in landfills, and landfill space in the Houston area is filling up.Most of the city doesn't have access to residential compost pickup, so the two guys behind Moonshot Compost decided to change things. They offer a subscription service and will pick up food waste from homes, apartments and businesses - including the Houston Food Bank and many local restaurants - turn it into compost, and return it. The company also tracks the pounds of food waste each subscriber keeps out of landfills.

The land is located near Highway 287 and Lookout Road and includes designated wetlands and agricultural land of national significance. (credit CBS) While the project has been in planning for years, there’s been no public input. Neighbors like Nancy Davis only learned about it recently. “We moved here 22 years ago because we loved everything that Boulder was about,” Davis told CBS4. Nancy Davis (credit CBS) When Davis and her husband sunk their life savings into a farm right next to the open space, the idea that the land – protected under an historic conservation easement – would be developed, never entered their minds. “That conservation easement was put there for a reason, it was for the public trust,” Davis explained.
