Food Waste Composting / Organic Recycling
For years, we have been taught to recycle paper, plastics, bottles, and cans.
Now many restaurants, supermarkets, and food manufacturing plants in Massachusetts are increasing what they recycle by composting organic materials such as meat, seafood, fruits, vegetables, dairy products, eggshells, grains, bread, coffee filters, and other food waste.
Custom Organic Recycling Plans for MA Businesses
Instead of throwing out your food waste, spoiled foods, and leftover meats, vegetables, doughnuts, bread, etc., we can design a custom organic recycling program to take this food waste and reuse it in an eco-friendly and environmentally beneficial way.
The more food waste we recycle, the less is dumped into valuable landfill space. Large amounts of organic material in landfills produces methane, a greenhouse gas with a stronger warming effect than carbon dioxide. We can do our part to reduce methane emissions by improving our food waste management and organic recycling efforts.
Processed food waste compost produces organic fertilizers that are the "green alternative" to chemical fertilizers. When composted organic materials are used to nourish soil for other vegetables & grains to grow, or used as feed for livestock, the cycle of life is continued.
Food Waste Recycling Reduces Waste Removal Costs
In addition to helping the environment by recycling food waste, MA restaurants, supermarkets, food manufacturing plants, grocery stores, and caterers will also save money and reduce their food waste management & removal costs through organic recycling.
Most restaurants and food vendors have trash compactors which they also dump food waste in. Food waste is very heavy, so by diverting the food waste to an organic composting program, there is a large cost savings because the disposal costs for trash are much higher than food waste. MA food businesses can also save money by downsizing to a smaller trash compactor or dumpster.
Other Benefits of Organics & Food Waste Composting
- Developing a reputation in the community as an environmentally conscious establishment that recycles. Many MA restaurant customers are looking to dine at "eco-friendly restaurants." Many of our eastern MA restaurants buy local, but could do even more by composting their food waste instead of putting it into the regular waste stream.
- Advertise & market your company as a green business. MA restaurants, grocery stores, and food marts that participate in food waste composting and organic recycling programs can showcase this involvement in their marketing strategies.
- Lowering regular trash disposal costs. Trash disposal costs are higher than food waste disposal costs. By keeping heavy food waste out of regular trash containers, MA restaurants & food businesses save money by diverting their food waste to separate dumpsters.
- "Right sizing" your trash container to a smaller, less expensive trash compactor or dumpster. Massachusetts food businesses again save money by diverting their food waste to separate dumpsters.
