Food Waste Facts

If food waste was a country, it would be the 3rd largest greenhouse gas emitter. 

Composting your food waste is another step we can all take to keep fighting climate change. 

Food & organic waste makes up the largest percentage of what gets thrown into landfills.

To reduce the amount of good organic material being waste require active waste diversion from all of us.  

Over 30 million tons of food waste is generated in America Alone.

Turning waste into compost is one of the most efficient ways to deal with such a large volume, Much better than burning or burying. 

An average american will throw away around a pound of food a day. 

While reducing the amount of food we waste is essential, some waste is unavoidable. But diverting food waste into compost can help grow more food in our region!
