STEP 6:

COMPOST!

If you can’t find another way to use your food scraps, then it's time to look into composting! Composting is the process through which you can turn your food scraps into a nutrient-rich soil-enhancer that helps new plants and vegetation thrive -- talk about full circle! Find out how you can create compost onsite, or discover services and organizations that can remove your food scraps and turn them into compost for you.

You can find a private hauler to pick up and transport your food scraps to a composting facility, or learn how you can use innovative technologies to process food waste.

Waste Management of New York, CORe®

Municipal food waste recycling

Waste Management of New York (WMNY), in cooperation with the NYC Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP) and the Department of Sanitation (DSNY), is proud to operate the city’s first large scale food waste to digestion recovery facility, a cost-effective alternative for turning food waste into renewable energy. Waste Management’s patented CORe® process is an innovative solution that recycles pre- and post-consumer food wastes into EBS®, an organic slurry product used to generate renewable green energy. The CORe® process converts food waste into a high-quality organic feedstock used for co-digestion in municipal anaerobic digesters. WMNY operates the CORe® food waste recycling facility within its existing Varick Avenue Transfer Station solid waste transfer premises in Brooklyn. At this site, food waste is processed into EBS® using our proprietary CORe® process. The EBS® is delivered to the NYCDEP’s Newtown Creek waste water resource recovery facility. It’s added to the plant’s anaerobic digestion system to increase the production of renewable biogas which will be delivered to the natural gas distribution system.
