Composting is the most sustainable option for managing organic waste. Composting food waste and other acceptable organic waste at a licensed composting facility produces a beneficial product using feedstock that is otherwise wasted in the landfill.
A landfill has a limited life, but a composting plant can continue to process waste indefinitely. By taking responsibility for diverting recoverable waste produced by your organization, you are helping to improve the sustainability of the region.
The benefits of the RDN Commercial Food Waste Diversion Program include:
Turning waste into a value-added resource by providing valuable feedstock for the region's only licensed composting facility.
Extending the life of the region's only landfill.
Preventing greenhouse emissions and leachate caused by decomposing organic landfill waste.
Producing valuable products, such as compost and fertilizer, that enhance soil and aids in plant growth.
