Why Recycle Food Waste?

Cost Savings: By reducing waste disposal costs and potentially generating revenue through the sale of repurposed food waste, collecting food waste can be cost-effective for food manufacturers.

Landfills are filling up fast: Food waste takes up valuable space in the limited number of landfills we have left. By diverting food waste away from landfills, we extend their life and repurpose this material for a more sustainable use by making animal feed, compost, fertilizer & biodiesel

Promoting Sustainability & Encouraging Circular Economy: Collecting food waste promotes sustainability by reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills and by creating opportunities for waste to be repurposed and reused as compost, animal feed, biofuel and other products rather than simply discarding it.

Types of Food Waste from Manufacturing

  1. Dry Goods: Dry goods manufacturing refers to producing food items that have a long shelf life and can be stored without refrigeration. Examples of dry goods include grains, cereals, pasta, beans, and nuts. The manufacturing process involves various steps such as cleaning, sorting, milling, blending, packaging, and labeling. As such, commercial bakers and manufacturers typically require custom solutions for their disposal needs. There are various ways to handle recycling byproducts that will depend on several factors such as volume, type of materials, available space, and loading equipment.
  2. Liquid Waste: Liquid waste refers to the production of liquid byproducts from various industry processes. This can include wastewater from food processing plants, dairy waste, fruit and vegetable processing waste, cooking oil and grease waste, liquid food waste from restaurants, brewery waste, and pulp and juice processing waste. Proper management of liquid food waste is important to reduce its environmental impact and prevent pollution. Methods of management may include composting, anaerobic digestion, or treatment and discharge in wastewater treatment plants.
