Wasting Away: Food Waste Reduction for Restaurants

Restaurants generate significant quantities of high quality food waste.

In 2017, restaurants that generate more than 4 cubic yards of organic waste will be required to arrange for organic waste recycling services.

In this seminar experts will discuss organic waste recycling and share innovative programs that reduce organic waste through food tracking, repurposing and new technologies such as composters and anaerobic digesters.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to implement an organic waste recycling program.
  • Reducing organic waste with food tracking and repurposing.
  • About new technologies for dealing with organic waste.
