The challenge

Organic Waste is Everywhere

About one-third of all waste is organic. Food and Beverage Businesses know this all too well with rates as high or higher than 60%. Separating organic or food waste can be challenging without the right source separation strategy. Food service businesses need different organic waste separation strategies than food manufacturing, production or retail facilities.

food waste bans

With organic or food waste accounting for over 25% of what is disposed into landfills daily, States, Counties and Cities across the United States are implementing landfill bans on any organic or food waste from certain businesses. For some companies, how to separate food waste is easier said than done. If your business needs to start a composting program, we can help.

The Solution

A Food Waste Management System

Every food business needs a food waste management system if they are going to separate food waste effectively and control disposal costs. A well-designed system includes the right containers, hauling contracts, data tracking, process monitoring, and education for both staff and customers.

We can help you design a food waste reduction and recycling program. We'll start with a food waste audit to determine how much organic waste is generated and the right reduction and diversion strategies for your business.
