Food & Beverage

It’s time to rethink your waste stream.

Food and beverage waste can be beneficially used in a number of ways, eliminating the need for landfill disposal. These wastes can be used as animal feed in certain circumstances, as fuel for a digester to produce renewable natural gas, or as a soil supplement to add organic matter and nutrients to improve your soil. Wessuc has experience evaluating food and beverage waste and is able to provide an assessment to determine viable options that fit with your facilities.

Food and beverage waste accounts for roughly 30% of all waste sent to landfill in Ontario. Removing it from landfills will reduce greenhouse gas emissions with initial estimates indicating a reduction of 2.2 megatonnes. The equivalent of removing 460,000 cars from the road.
