If you don’t have a community collection but you do have a backyard, you should start composting as it will provide healthy microbes for your garden! If you live in a high-rise building, work in an office, attend a school, or work in a restaurant or factory, chances are there is food that requires a composting system. EcoSafe® provides food scrap collection programs for any community, institution, or business that wants to institute a green waste program. With over 20 years experience, EcoSafe®’s team has helped residential, institutional, and commercial businesses of all sizes achieve Zero Waste (as defined by the Zero Waste International Alliance’s definition of getting waste to be regarded as a resource base). From BC Ferries to the LA Memorial Coliseum, to being the official compostable bag supplier of the 2010 Olympics, there is no project too big or small for EcoSafe® to handle! We have the right products, experience, and communication tools to help you start a successful food scraps collection program. At EcoSafe®, we don’t just think about the people collecting food scraps, but we also consider the haulers, composters, and other stakeholders required to transport and process the food scraps. We ensure that your organization is set up with the right connections so that we can close the loop on food being wasted, and instead, recovered as a natural resource for compost. Contact us today to get started! How do your food scrap collection programs positively impact the climate crisis? Like our compostable products, our food scrap collection programs positively impact the climate crisis because they are designed to decrease plastic consumption, divert food from landfills, and repurpose food scraps for compost. Food in landfills emits methane emissions, a greenhouse gas that is 28 times more harmful than carbon dioxide. By implementing our programs, you can increase the amount of compost available to your community. Our programs easily educate waste generators to separate food scraps from trash and recyclables, helping composters get the feedstock required to create more compost. Additionally, many cities are accelerating bans that prohibit the disposal of food scraps to landfills. As the world moves to address the challenges associated with the climate crisis stiving to become carbon-neutral, implementing food scrap collection programs and moving away from traditional plastic products can help build a healthy soil foundation and create a cleaner environment for all.
