Frequent Questions

How will diverting my food scraps save money?

Less food in the trash can save you money in several ways:

  • Avoided purchase costs through food waste prevention strategies.
  • Avoided service costs by using fewer or smaller trash bins.
  • Reduction in garbage bill by less frequent trash collection for commercial generators.
  • Your local hauler might discount separate collection for organics.
  • Eliminate purchase of additional soil amendments for onsite landscaping through onsite composting.
  • If long-term disposal and diversion costs are comparable, choose the option that helps meet EPA's waste diversion goals and uses resources more wisely.
