Food Waste Best Management Practices
Our Solution for Food Waste
workshopIn 2011, we identified available options for managing the food waste in our system. We presented the options at a series of public meetings, including an online virtual workshop, and asked our customers what options they preferred.

The feedback from the workshops directly led to the development of best management practices for food waste in Pierce County:
  • Waste reduction of all materials, including food
  • Food waste composting program for businesses
  • Landfill diversion for bulky items (wood, metal)

More information about this project is below.
