Commercial Organics and Food Scrap Recycling

 
New Commercial Organics Program
 
An Innovative new program to Cut Waste and Generate Compost!
Republic Services began offering a NEW Commercial Organics program to compost food
scraps, etc.  This innovative program will divert food scraps and other organic
materials from landfill disposal and turn it into compost. Currently, there is no additoonal charge for this service.
 
In addition to special containers (sizes vary) for storage of materials, Republic Services will provide signs and posters to help remind staff how to participate in the food scraps and composting program. A collection schedule will be established with the program collector, Republic Services. Republic is able to make multiple collections per week and prevent creating a nuisance. 
 
Additional savings can be realized by diverting all or as much organics from garbage disposal as possible. This is because businesses pay for garbage disposal that includes organics service. By removing food scraps from garbage and reducing overall disposal, businesses are able to reduce landfill (garbage) collection requirements that will reduce their costs!
