Adding Food Waste to a Yard Trimmings Compost Facility

This resource was developed to help municipal operators considering adding food waste to yard trimmings composting sites. This toolkit helps operators determine whether introducing food waste to their operation is a good fit. Topics covered include: why an operation may want to expand, evaluation of the existing site, best practices for composting food waste, collection and hauling consideration, regulatory requirements, types of food waste, economic considerations, and compost markets. Thanks to the Center for Eco Technology and BioCycle for developing this resource.
