Food Scrap Recycling

Better for the Environment. Better for Business.

Reduce Your Disposal Costs by Recycling Your Food Scraps

More customers than ever are demanding that their vendors and suppliers employ sustainable, environmentally sound business practices. By recycling your food scraps you can fulfill these customersʼ wishes and dramatically cut your disposal costs at the same time.

At Sunshine Composting & Organics we put your waste to work by converting it into organic compost that can be used by landscapers, farmers and homeowners to enrich soil and improve plant health.

Commercial Composting
Makes Sense

You may think you’re doing the right thing by sending your food scraps to a landfill. After all, they’ll decompose eventually, right? It may come as a surprise, but landfills typically lack the correct environment for decomposition, even for items that are biodegradable. So your garbage just sits there taking up valuable space, whether it’s a Styrofoam container or produce trimmings.

Now there’s a better choice

One that’s good for business and good for the environment. Commercial composting with Sunshine Composting & Organics.

Sunshine Composting & Organics will provide you with a commercial composting container. All you have to do is fill it up – with food scraps, spoiled bakery and dairy products, coffee grounds – even waxed cardboard boxes.

No sorting or extra labor is necessary. Sunshine will pick up your container weekly and take the contents to a state-of-the-art composting facility, where it will be converted to certified organic compost. What once went into the landfill or was incinerated can eventually go into the garden.

And because commercial composting rates are typically much lower than regular garbage service, you’ll save money while being environmentally and socially responsible.
