Food Waste Becomes Feedstock
Food waste disposal can be costly because of the weight of the materials and special handling that is sometimes required. Looking for a way to beneficially reuse such materials and to help keep disposal costs down, Republic Services came up with a cost-effective solution for customers interested in diverting food materials from their waste stream. Republic Services contracted to send food waste to a facility licensed by the California Department of Food and Agriculture for use as feedstock for hogs.

The result is an affordable solution that is now of interest to many of the area’s largest food waste customers, including national grocery chains and regional hotels.
