What You Can Do

Follow the Food Waste Recovery Hierarchy

In Waste Not, Want Not: Feeding the Hungry and Reducing Solid Waste Through Food Recovery both EPA and
USDA recommend following the “food recovery hierarchy” below as the preferred options to make the most of
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.
  • Source Reduction – Reduce the
    amount of food waste being
    generated;
  • Feed People – Donate excess
    food to food banks, soup kitchens
    and shelters;
  • Feed AnimalsProvide food
    scraps to farmers;
  • Industrial Uses – Provide fats for
    rendering; oil for fuel; food
    discards for animal feed
    production; or anaerobic digestion
    combined with soil amendment
    production or composting of the
    residuals
  • Composting – Recycle food
    scraps into a nutrient rich soil
    amendment
  • Landfill / Incineration - Last
    resort
Depending on the size of your operation, by source segregating your food
waste  for recycling, and diverting it from your waste stream, you can save
dramatically on your current disposal fees. Partnering with us will save you
money!
In a typical restaurant, you may be generating 50% of your trash weight from
recyclable food scraps. Separating that waste would mean more space in
the dumpster for trash and less weight in your dumpster. That should
translate into less money spent on disposal fees.
We provide a full door to door service or you can save even more by
dropping the organics off at our facility.
