compostable plastic? repost from Gen topics board

Got this topic on the wrong board originally, but did get an answer there.

Yes, there is compostable plastic being produced and it reads "compostable" on the back side; there are no recycle symbols. So don't put it in with the recyclables, it goes in the garbage (solid waste), and will break down in a landfill.

The piece I got was a produce tray from Trader Joe's. I imagine there will be more showing up in the "disposable" stream; any other sightings?
