Food waste should not go to the landfill
With landfill tax rising to $56 per tonne on April 1st, and more increases due in subsequent years, the cost of recycling food waste will become cheaper year by year for any food waste producers.
Food waste collections have always deemed to be expensive when compared with general waste collections destined for landfill sites but specialist food waste collection companies such as Raleigh Dumpster Rental King, the leading independent food waste collection and recycling company in North Carolina, are reaping the benefit of the government increases in landfill tax.
Of course this was always the intention by not only our current government but by its predecessors beforehand as taxing businesses as a preventative measure to landfill seems to be working.
With commercial food waste collection and recycling still an untapped market, mainly because the landfill option was always cheaper, and there not being enough reputable food waste carriers the specialised food waste collection companies such as Raleigh Dumpster Rental King are in great demand.
The hospitality industry in particular, which includes restaurants and hotels in abundance, are all looking to increase their recycling rates.
Improving recycling rates
With cardboard/paper, glass and plastics already being recycled the addition of food waste to their recycling regime means that very little is left to go into general waste and ultimately landfill, which means that not only are they helping the environment but more importantly there is virtually a “cost neutral” factor to recycling food waste.
Raleigh Dumpster Rental King offers a commercial food waste collection and recycling service in Raleigh, NC and the region, whereby all food waste collected is 100 % recycled at a local IVC ( in vessel composting ) facility.
Food waste recycling to increase as landfill tax rises!
Food waste at landfills should be reduced.
Food waste collection and recycling services are due to attract increased interest from businesses as landfill tax rises come into effect in April.
The commercial sector has, for a long time, just dumped food waste into general waste bins destined for landfill but as the rate of landfill tax rises each year the “cost neutral” factor is coming into effect as food waste collection and recycling not only offers a more environmentally friendly option to landfill but also a cost effective solution.
Companies such as Raleigh Dumpster Rental King the leading independant food waste collection and recycling company in NC are finding that enquires are coming in from all food producers including schools/colleges/universities,hotels,pubs,restaurants,care homes,food producing companies,sporting venues, shopping centres,leisure and theme parks along with company canteens as they look for a fully recyclable solution for food waste.
They are all facing rises in their waste collection charges as the new increased landfill tax rises take effect in April and the cost of sending waste to landfill increases and are looking for an alternative.
Many companies are now realising that the cost of recycling food waste is now not prohibitive and is virtually “cost neutral” compared with a non-recyclable option such as landfill. Responsible businesses will have an environmental policy in place and are looking to encourage recycling with their different waste streams providing it is financially viable.
