2,470,00 pounds of waste diverted annually with AOWR's assistance.
AOWR took a "grass roots" approach to finding local organic recycling solutions for them. A comprehensive food waste program was implemented. In some border town areas, this was not a simple task; AOWR took the time required to understand the local market.
The end result was more than a 40% cost reduction in their landfill waste expense (based on volume and cost reduction), plus the benefit of rebates for their recycled commodities.
Operations were not affected as nothing changes beyond choosing different container at the applicable locations. Costs went down, recycling went up, rebates are received.
