RW guide 1A revised version of a guide to On-Site Systems for Managing Food Waste, compiled by RecyclingWorks, is now available on our website on the “Options for Complying with the Commercial Organics Waste Ban” page. This comprehensive, 88-page guide includes information about cost-effective ways to comply with the Massachusetts Commercial Organics Waste Ban on-site, such as wastewater based systems, dehydrators and pulpers, and compost units to anaerobic digesters. These systems can work well for facilities that have adequate space and grounds for processed food material to be added to an existing composting operation, or where hauler collection routes for food waste are limited.
