Food Waste

A remarkable 15.8 million tons of food goes to waste in the U.S. In some communities, edible surpluses from restaurants and food stores are distributed to people in need. Vegetable and plant matter can be composted in backyard bins or indoor containers or in community facilities.

You can put the following measures into place to reduce the amount of food waste going into the landfill by 4 percent:

  • help fund the distribution of surpluses to people in need
  • provide composting at recycling centers and offer the compost for sale
  • provide backyard composting workshops and sell composting bins to residents at discounted prices
These measures will cost $40 to $60 thousand dollars.
