Why Corporations Should Be Recycling Their Organics
Your company wants to be environmentally responsible, but you may be wondering where to start. A good place to begin is an Organic Waste Recycling program. Learn why this is good for your business.
Reduce Waste, Reduce Cost
Reducing cost is good for your business. Recycling is good for the environment. Doing both is possible with the right plan. Recycle your organic waste instead of throwing it in the trash headed for the landfill. Composting rates are usually less than trash removal rates. Do this one thing and you may realize 20% cost savings in your company’s waste removal budget.
This Land Is Your Land
Studies show that 29% of the incoming waste stream of a typical landfill is organic waste – yard waste and food waste. (Bloominton.in.gov, Environmental Literacy Council)
Choosing to recycle your organic waste places less demand on the need for landfills. It also places less methane producing waste into landfills thus reducing a significant greenhouse gas. That’s being a good steward of your land.
Compost is Beautiful
If your organic waste isn’t going to the landfill, it now benefits your surrounding community. Organic waste is put to work through the natural decomposing process converting it into organic compost. Landscapers, farmers and homeowners use it to enrich soil, improve plant health and increase crop yield.
