industry insights

The food service industry in the US produces a serious amount of cardboard, plastic, and organic food waste. Ideally, with ethical food practices already in place, restaurants funnel their additional food waste to local communities and shelters. But, what is the most ethical and sustainable way to care for your recyclable waste?

What Does Waste Look Like In the Food Industry?

Restaurants mainly generate cardboard and plastic waste, primarily in the form of new and used packaging. Undoubtedly, plastic waste poses a significant danger to the environment if not properly recycled. Balers in the food service industry seek to mitigate and manage both cardboard and plastic waste, at the source.

Benefits of waste compaction

Reduced number of waste collections, saving businesses on transport costs.

Safer, cleaner facilities to maintain a healthy, organized kitchen space.

Sorting and preparing waste for recycling invests in a greener footprint.
