FOOD WASTE & CompostABLE

 

 

We are one of the only vendors in the Greater Boston Area that can pick up your food scraps – no matter how much you generate!

We have provided food waste collection since 2007. We are working with a range of businesses and institutions to provide food scrap collections, and help them comply with the 2014 Massachusetts DEP Organics Waste Ban.

As of January 2018 food scraps and a tolerant mix of compostable service ware are accepted in the organics recycling program we provide.
