Commercial Food Waste Recycling

The City of Orlando’s Food Waste Recycling Program gives your business the option to recycle pre and post-consumer food waste. This is important because approximately 20% of landfills are composed of food waste. When food waste ends up in the landfill it creates Methane, a powerful greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming.
