The average North American throws away 500 lbs of food waste per year, the majority of which inevitably ends up in landfills and generates methane gas.
A Cleaner Community
Food waste in the garbage creates odors and attracts pests. It also means collection has to be more frequent. Eliminate the garbage day smell and have fewer trucks driving around the community.
Protect the Environment
Up to 40% of carbon emissions from waste are created during transport. On-site processing eliminates all emissions from transport and leaves residents with a nutrient-rich mulch for their gardens.
