We provide 35-gallon and 64-gallon roll-out carts to store food waste separately from trash. Carts are equipped with two wheels for easy maneuverability, lids, and a locking mechanism to prevent unwanted access. Our dedicated food waste collection fleet is designed to prevent release of liquids as we empty your carts. Here’s what to expect:
We transport the food waste to processing facilities in the New York City area.
The food waste is then transferred to aerobic and anaerobic compost facilities.
Processed material becomes top soil, mulch and other aggregate material for use on farms, gardens and in landscaping projects.
The Anaerobic Digesters (AD’s) used in food waste composting rapidly cycle organics back into use, turning them into a valuable resource for sustainable agriculture and renewable energy.
Composting Fights Global Warming
By diverting organics from trash to composting, we can help you achieve or surpass your sustainability goals. Composting food waste is an effective way of preventing the production of damaging greenhouse gas emissions. When organic material is composted instead of landfilled or burned, it prevents the release of methane gas and directs much-needed nutrients back into our natural environment.
Composting is Cost-Effective
For most of our customers, food waste diversion is less expensive than throwing it away as trash. It’s one of the ways Mr. T Carting is leading the way to Zero Waste.
- Composting is less expensive than trash by weight.
- Our composting trucks have scales, so you can track the weight of the food waste as well as the volume.
- We can set up composting programs and lower the weight of the material that you throw away to enable a reduced cost.
