BioCycle Nationwide Survey: Residential Food Waste Collection In The U.S.

BioCycle Nationwide Survey: Residential Food Waste Collection In The U.S. | Recycling News Channel | OrganicStream.org | Scoop.it

"Interest in residential food waste collection is huge throughout the U.S. That interest is tempered, however, by the economics, logistics and politics in many communities, which can make implementation difficult. In the first part of BioCycle’s Nationwide Survey Report (“Taking States’ Pulse On Residential Food Waste Collection,” October 2014), many of these drivers and barriers were addressed on a state-by-state basis. Part II offers a glimpse into communities that are implementing curbside collection of food scraps."

The Organic Stream's insight:

Food waste collection is steadily growing in the US - 2.74 million households now with curbside collection schemes.


There is still a long way to go of course, (as pointed out to us by Michele Giavini on twitter, food waste collection in Italy is at 20 million households!), but we are excited to see how far and how quickly organics collection will spread in the upcoming years.
