Missouri Organic Recycling picks up food wastes from public and private sector cafeteria operations and commercial food companies. We then
recycle the food waste into compost.|
Any company with food or food production waste should inquire about participation. Environmental Concepts & Design Ltd. is our partner in the program. Funding assistance was provided by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
How Can Your Organization Participate?
We can perform a free site-specific waste audit to determine if our organization is a good candidate for this program. We will evaluate bottomline
savings that can be achieved by your participation in the FRED Program. We'll also explain how FRED can reduce your firm's future liabilities
associated with land filling.
Another benefit to your organization is this: FRED is a "green" and environmentally friendly program. It will make your company a role model for
others in the corporate or non-profit community.
If you want to ask questions about FRED or schedule an on-site evaluation, please call 816.483.0908.
Once you enroll, Missouri Organic will provide your organization with waste audits, training and education designed to fit your specific needs
and ensure that your food waste is recovered and recycled efficiently.
Special containers, some lined with biodegradable bags will be placed in cafeterias or other selected areas for collection of food or food production
The foods waste will be picked up as needed and take to our recycling center for composting.
Non-compostable items will continue to be disposed of in your regular trash.
