Organic Recycling

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:

  1. All food service establishments in hotels with 150 or more rooms
  2. All food service vendors in arenas and stadiums with seating capacity of at least 15,000
  3. Food manufacturers with a floor area of at least 25,000 square feet
  4. 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.
