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.
Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle                                  Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle          
  • 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

    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.
