What You Can Do

In Waste Not, Want Not: Feeding the Hungry and Reducing Solid Waste Through Food Recovery both EPA and

excess food. The food waste recovery hierarchy comprises the following activities, with the top 3 as the most
preferred since the outcome is waste avoidance. The bottom 3 considered waste management are least
preferred, with disposal as the last resort option.

Depending on the size of your operation, by
segregating your food waste for recycling, and
diverting it from your waste stream you can save
dramatically on your disposal cost . In a typical
restaurant, you may be generating 50% of your
trash weight from recyclable food scraps. At an
estimated tipping fee of $90/ton, its like throwing
money out the window. If your trash hauler
doesn't charge you by the ton, he should be.
Even if he's not, you are still paying for it
because the food waste takes up space which
means more pick ups for the trash guy and more
money out of your pocket. So it just makes cents
for you as a business to source segregate your
food waste and contact us to see how much
money we can save you. Local Recycling.
