Why Your Business Should Start Composting Today!

Discarding Food Waste Pic_edited.jpg

Essentially, throwing away food is throwing away money. According to the National Restaurant Association, on average, a restaurant loses four to ten percent of food they purchase. Working to reduce food waste can cut an individual restaurant's costs by 2 to 6 percent.

1) Environmental Responsibility: Composting reduces the amount of organic waste that ends up in landfills, where it produces harmful greenhouse gases. By composting, businesses can significantly reduce their carbon footprint and demonstrate a commitment to environmental sustainability.

2) Cost Savings: Composting can lead to cost savings for businesses. By diverting organic waste from trash pickups, companies can reduce their waste disposal expenses and potentially lower landfill fees or waste hauling costs. 

With our service you use reusable 55-gallon drums which will reduce the amount of plastic bags you purchase.

3) "Cleaner Trash", Less Pests, Odors and Less Sewage Costs:
Because food is 90% water on average, when you dispose of your food waste in a compactor you essentially squeeze the water and grease out, destroying the mechanism of the compactor, creating conducive conditions for pests, and paying for sewage on top of waste hauling. 
When you use our drums, you are separating food waste from the waste stream and sealing it, eliminating the odor coming from the compactor.

4) Circular Economy, Positive Image & Employee Engagement:
Involving employees in composting programs can boost morale, enhance workplace culture, and create a sense of pride in contributing to eco-friendly initiatives.
When you turn food waste into compost you are creating a positive image for your business. Also, you partake in a circular economy by creating a commodity out of something that would have otherwise gone to the landfill.

5) Resource Conservation, Community Engagement and Long-Term Sustainability:
Composting creates a closed-loop system, where organic waste is recycled into valuable compost. This promotes resource conservation and community engagement.

Composting fosters community engagement by providing opportunities for collaboration with local farms, community gardens, or composting initiatives. It strengthens community ties and showcases a business' commitment to long-term sustainability.

Embracing composting positions businesses for long-term sustainability by aligning with evolving environmental regulations and consumer preferences.

6) Healthy Soils and Beautification Projects:
Compost is a natural soil conditioner that improves soil structure, fertility, and water retention. Businesses can use it to enhance landscaping or agricultural projects, reducing the need for synthetic fertilizers. Compost also acts as a natural fertilizer that improves soil health and reduces runoff.
