We’re excited to announce we are launching a new food waste recycling program exclusively offered to our Wasatch County customers! Did you know that there is more organic waste in landfills than any other item? Food waste makes up over 1/3 of landfill material and releases harmful methane gas during the decomposition process. Our partnership with Wasatch Resource Recovery will help to change that!
Wasatch Resources Recovery (WRR) has designed a facility that can take your food waste and turn it into a cleaner and more sustainable gas used in both residential and commercial buildings. WRR has a team of microorganisms working hard to break down your table scraps. This creates methane gas which will then be purified and sold back to the market.
More about WRR
Wasatch Resource Recovery is Utah’s first and only anaerobic digester dedicated to food waste diversion. The facility processes organic waste which includes food scraps, liquid waste and manufacturing food waste. The process will turn the organic matter into sustainable resources –– biogas and bio-based fertilizer. See how it works.
Your business or organization can divert packaged and/or unpackaged food waste, including prepared food, fruit, vegetables, meat, and dairy, as well as fats, oils & grease (F.O.G.) and other liquids. Due to the fact that Wasatch Resource Recovery is not a waste hauler, we will work directly with your current hauler, or hauler of your choice, to divert your organic wastes to the digester. Diverting your food waste from the landfill to Wasatch Resource Recovery can result in cost savings and long-term risk management, as well as significant environmental benefits.
We can process food waste from restaurants, grocery stores, hotels, caterers, breweries, food processing-manufacturing plants, cafeterias, hospitals, schools, universities, glass bottled / aluminum canned / plastic bottled beverage sellers or distributors, etc.
We’re excited we are able to offer this service to our current Wasatch County customers! For customers that are currently enrolled in weekly pickups, this additional service can be added to your current subscription for as low as $12/month.
The pickup frequency for this program will be on a weekly pickup basis regardless of your current pickup frequency!
