We’re dedicated to helping businesses divert their food waste from the landfill to local compost facilities.

Importance of Composting Food Waste

SMART Recycling envisions a world with less garbage, more sustainable communities, and more locally sourced food. Food waste makes up 40% of trash, and a shocking 52.4 million tons of food are sent to landfills each year (view report). Not only does this waste take up a tremendous amount of landfill space, but it also generates dangerous methane gas as it decomposes.

In contrast, composting food waste instead of trashing it serves local farmers who purchase compost to regenerate the soil with nutrients. SMART Recycling is committed to bridging the “table-to-farm” gap and knows through years of experience that several things are needed to truly make an impact:

  • Proper education

  • Food waste recycling programs

  • Efficient transportation

  • Partnerships with large producers of food waste
