Food Scraps Collection
Food Scraps Collection & Recycling
Over 20 percent of solid waste disposed in U.S. landfills and incinerators is food waste that could be recycled into compost, a valuable soil amendment. There is a growing trend nationally to change this trend. Several states and a few large cities now require food scraps to be diverted from waste disposal. More than 10 percent of U.S. restaurants separate their food scraps for composting – and that number is growing.
EcoVerde Organics offers commercial and institutional organizations the opportunity to recycle food scraps. Partner with EcoVerde to divert food-related waste from your trash and help turn it into a beneficial, high-quality, organic compost that improves crops, landscapes and gardens in our region.
How It Works
- EVO provides sturdy, wheeled totes to collect discarded food.
- Food service staff place acceptable food scraps into the totes.
- EVO crew collects the food scraps, cleans the totes and delivers the material to its site for composting.
It’s that simple!
We start with a trial period to determine the amount of acceptable waste your venue generates, then develop a service plan for the number of totes and collection frequency that fits your needs.
EVO supports its food scraps partners with reports of the amount of food waste collected along with signage and educational material to promote your positive environmental commitment to your customers. Contact us to learn more.
