Food Waste

SHARE IT, SAVE IT TASTE IT,

JUST PLEASE DON’T WASTE IT!

Approximately 20 to 25 percent of the trash entering disposal facilities is food waste.  When food waste is buried in landfills, it decomposes and generates methane gas, a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change.  The large quantity of food being wasted and disposed in this manner not only needlessly fills up landfills but has also made these sites the third largest source of methane in the United States.  Help reduce food waste through smart shopping, proper storage of food, making the most of your leftovers and other easy but effective strategies.
