Waste = Resource
Almost any business can successfully create fewer discards by buying less, and therefore divert food discards from landfills. Businesses with record-setting food diversion programs are recovering 50% to 100% of their food discards and reducing their overall solid waste by 33% to 85%. But recovery of food and other organics is just one part of a successful overall waste reduction program. We also recover resources from soft plastics, fluorescent light tubes, used cooking oils, wood pallets and e-waste, including used computers, TVs, monitors and peripherals.
