Food Recycling and Baseball Opening Day... I'm confused

What do these two things have in common? I have no idea. Let's read the UT article.
This season, Petco Park will expand recycling efforts started last year with bottles, cans and other materials. Cooks in the ballpark's main kitchen will put scraps from their salads, soups and meat dishes into recycling containers. Nearly all types of food, including meat, can be composted.

Okay so food scraps are filling up our land fills? Doesn't that stuff just bio-degrade? I should probably be reading this article closer, but it seems like it has less and less to do with baseball.

Ballpark officials also plan to compost peanut shells, which are collected by air blowers after cleaning crews pick out big pieces of trash and recyclable objects. Eventually, the city wants to collect unsold cotton candy and bags of unsold popcorn.

Oh man I'm getting bored. You readers may have to read this article yourself. The "unsold cotton candy" part captured my attention for a second since I used to sell it myself. Let me tell you there is nothing sadder looking then a lonely little cotton candy that didn't sell. It start shrinking and my eyes start watering. Poor little dude.

Okay you're on your own with this article dudes, I can't get through it.

Funny story about cotton candy. Some friends of mine were at the game and they normally get drunk and a little obnoxious. So one of them buys two things of cotton candy and gives it to the kids in front of us, saying, "This is to apologize for what I might do later in the game"

Then Fig bought one for himself.
