While recycling materials such as plastic, glass, aluminum and paper have become commonplace, most food waste still ends up in our landfills. Currently, less that 3% of the more than 30 million tons of organic waste we produce annually gets recycled. For commercial food processors who deal with large quantities of food waste, the problem is multiplied.
Rather than haul this leftover food to landfills where it produces harmful methane emissions, many organizations have now discovered a new option. The Food Cycler sterilizes, deodorizes and turns potentially harmful food scraps into safe, sterilized compost that can be reused as a soil amendment.
