Food Waste Recycling: The Future Starts Now

White-paper-Food Waste Recycling: The Future Starts Now

The inaugural Waste360 Recycling Summit (September 2015, in Chicago) gathered more than 350 professionals from municipalities, waste generators, and solution providers to discuss the state of today’s recycling industry and—perhaps most importantly—opportunities for the future.

One of the topics that got significant airtime at the event was food-residuals recovery. Speakers discussed the importance and logistics of diversion for these types of recyclables; how to extract value; and how to process the materials in an efficient, sustainable way. A key takeaway for attendees was that organics recovery would be accomplished successfully only when financially sustainable business plans support such efforts.
