Composting 101

Why divert food waste from landfills?

More than half of food waste generated each year is sent to landfill or incinerators. Organic materials such as paper, yard trimmings and food waste make up a large portion of the total MSW.  Methane is one of the most powerful greenhouse gas and landfills are the largest generators of methane in the United States.  Studies show that Americans discarded 36 million tons of food waste in 2012 but only five percent was diverted from landfills or incinerators for composting. 

Organix Solutions has created a program to divert organic waste from landfills and composting those materials, thereby significantly minimizing greenhouse gases and producing soil remediation.  Composting Food Waste is the biological process of breaking up of organic waste such as kitchen waste, coffee grounds, paper towels, etc. (see list of acceptable/non acceptable items for composting)
