Don't under-value your food waste!

FoodCycling has benefits for your organization and for Mother Earth:

  • Keep your dumpsters free of food waste, which is typically costlier to collect

  • Minimize your contribution to the local landfill, reducing harmful methane gas

  • Give your food waste a purpose: it’s vermicomposted into a microbe-rich fertilizer

  • Partner with an RVA-local company to “close the loop” in food waste solutions

  • Rest easy knowing your organic waste is contributing to a better, healthier earth!
