Compost Yields Healthy Crops

which promotes increased water retention and nutrient absorption for plant growth. Compost also provides a feedstock for essential microorganisms in the soil that aid plants and roots.

Utilizing Food Scraps in Compost

returns a nutrient rich soil amendment back to the earth and diverts roughly 30% of waste volumes sent to landfill annually in Illinois. 

Integrating Food Scraps Through Collection

drives demand from the bottom up, creating broader diversion opportunities for food scrap generators and haulers.

Wasting 40% of Food Supply

increases the need for more production of food crops. If efficiencies can be found in this system, the same amount of food can find its way to feed more people.
