Food Waste Recycling Landfill Chart - South Shore, Plymouth, MA

We now accept all food waste, including meat, fish, and dairy.

18 to 20% of all that goes in the landfill is all rotting food.

We take the smell out of the landfill and add nutrients back to the soil.

How It Works And How Your Community Benefits

We believe in leaving behind positive effects in local communities.

We offer curbside pick up to homes and / or businesses on a weekly basis.

All food waste is then composted responsibly, cleanly and efficiently to help create a greener planet.

We help to create an eco-friendly environment by lowering our carbon footprint and reducing greenhouse gases.

We take your food waste and we turn them into a green alternative to nourish the soil and grow organic produce.

Simply stated, the landfills are to overcrowded and we are trying to combat this problem by partnering with local farms to compost the material and make it a useful product instead of putting it in a landfill.  From there, the produce is grown and it is given to us to help feed the people of that community.  It’s a WIN, WIN!
