The easiest, cheapest, and most sustainable way to manage organic waste is to avoid creating it in the first place.

To reduce organic waste at its source: avoid over purchasing & over preparing;
serve smaller portion sizes; properly store & label food items. For remaining organic waste, consider alternative disposal methods:

» Use a kitchen food pail to collect food scraps.

» Recycle organic waste at home using a backyard composting system.

» Use NASA’s Green cart. Organic waste is processed for compost or anaerobically
digested to produce energy.
