Expanding Collection of Food Scraps and Compostable Packaging (WasteExpo 2018)

May 30, 2018

In 2017, two market studies were conducted to better understand the current state of the infrastructure to divert food scraps and compostable packaging. In the first study, BioCycle refreshed its community access survey to develop a national plot of residential food scrap collection programs. At the same time, Resource Recycling Systems (RRS) collected information on food scraps and packaging acceptance by composters as part of the Foodservice Packaging Institute (FPI) efforts to recover more foodservice packaging. In this session, FPI, BioCycle and RRS will present key findings from the research, examine how the information is being used to gain insights, and discuss significant access and infrastructure gaps that were identified through the process.
