Start Composting

Institutions and businesses in Illinois, including grocery stores, schools, universities, hospitals, hotels, communities of faith, and high rise buildings are composting food scraps. As food scrap composting becomes more widely available and affordable in Illinois, more and more institutions are setting up systems either on-site or by having their food scraps hauled to a commercial composting facility.
