Certain establishments that create a large amount of food waste, such as restaurants and grocery stores, are required to separate their organic waste out for beneficial use. Businesses that fall under these rules include:
- All food service establishments in hotels with 150 or more rooms
- All food service vendors in arenas and stadiums with seating capacity of at least 15,000
- Food manufacturers with a floor area of at least 25,000 square feet
- Food wholesalers with a floor area of at least 20,000 square feet
Businesses have three options for complying with these rules, they can: transport the organic waste to a treatment facility themselves, hiring a carting company to transport the organic waste to a treatment facility, or they can treat the organic waste on site.
Metropolitan Recycling now offers the BIO-EZ food waste disposal system. The BIO-EZ works by combining organic waste with a patent pending microbial formula in a special processing unit. Throughout the day, the microbes digest the waste and turn it into nutrient-rich water that can then be flushed into a sanitary sewer system. Contact us today to see if the BIO-EZ would make a good fit for your business.
