Food waste recycling plays an important role in preserving our environment and increasing sustainability efforts.

Landfills account for 18% of methane emissions in the U.S.
100% of organic material can be beneficially repurposed

Benefits of Organic Waste Recycling

Reduce Greenhouse Gas

Less food waste in landfills means less methane emitted into the air.

Organics Into Compost

Organic materials can be turned into compost—a nutrient-rich soil amendment.

Minimize Landfill Waste

Organic recycling diverts food waste from landfills and beneficially reuses vital materials.

Sustainable Community

Composting at home can reduce your household waste and benefit the environment.
