Why to Separate Food Scraps from Food Waste
About one percent of a typical Vermont family’s food waste is nutrients and yard debris. In restaurants and cafes, food savings can be more than half of the waste. Keeping these materials away from landfills has a big impact:
When locked in a landfill, food scraps slowly and without oxygen. This process produces methane, a greenhouse gas 84 times stronger than carbon dioxide over a 20-year period. The residue contains valuable nutrients that are beneficial to the soil. The compost can be used in gardens, fields and landscaping. Throwing food scraps in landfills is never a recommended approach as it causes wastage of resources.
Reducing waste saves ground space. Compost works to help your waste compost, local farmers and food waste carriers. Without food scraps, the dirt is clean and odourless. Food scraps container and food scraps bucket can be used for composting of these useful food scraps.
