A Deep Dive into Food Waste Program Design

Original Stream Date: September 11, 2014

 Webinar Summary:

This webinar provided a comprehensive discussion of the decision points involved in designing a food recovery and composting program. The presenters explored the various considerations that lead a school to plan one food waste recovery option over another.

An industry leader in the field of organics management offered expert guidance about what should influence a school’s decision to set up an internal composting system versus contracting it out. Then, a few campus case studies were presented that showed, in practice, how factors such as program economics, citing for on-campus composting operations, staffing, volume of material, and end-use needs impact the design and evolution of their successful composting programs.
