The Impact Canada Waste Reduction Challenge
The Challenge is a three-part initiative from the Government of Canada to incentivize the reduction of Canada's food waste. As Challenge semi-finalists, FoodCycler has committed to offering select northern, remote Canadian municipalities the opportunity to pilot our food waste recyclers at a heavily subsidized cost.
The FoodCycler Pilot Programs allow underserved communities to trial on-site waste diversion as a method of lowering their carbon footprint and extending the lifespan of their landfill.
The FoodCycler Impact
FoodCycler waste diversion technology offers >95% reduction in CO2E compared to sending food waste to landfill. In areas with renewable energy, FoodCycler actually generates less CO2 than a backyard composter.
By reducing food waste on-site, overall waste volume can be halved: this reduces the need for frequent collection, which further reduces cost to the municipality and transportation emissions.

The first FoodCycler Municipal partner, Nelson (British Columbia) successfully launched and ran two FoodCycler Pilot Programs in 2020 with an average participant rating of 4.5/5 stars.
"We bought into this program, and I’m actually astounded by what it can do. What I love most about the FoodCycler is it gets you refocused on taking care of your own waste at home. I believe that going forward we'll see a waste system that puts the onus back on the producer and consumer to deal with their own waste rather than spending millions on infrastructure. I believe we have an opportunity through this tiny little machine here to work towards a goal of zero waste."
Nelson Mayor, John Dooley
