Total Organics Recycling makes food scrap composting easy and can get you on the path to zero waste! We offer 64 or 21 gallon totes for food scrap collection and pick up the filled totes on scheduled days agreed upon with you. Your totes are dumped and rinsed on site and then replaced. By partnering with Total Organics Recycling, you can divert food waste from the landfill and can potentially lower your current trash costs!

tote2Here is how it works:

  • One of our trained composting specialists will come out to to determine the amount of totes and pick-ups your business will need. Additional totes and pick-ups can be scheduled at any time.
  • Your yellow totes will arrive ready to be filled with organic material.
  • Your Total Organics Recycling Representative will come out and train your staff for you on what is compostable and what is not as well as provide you with educational posters and stickers. We can do as many training sessions as needed.
  • You fill the tote!
  • At your scheduled pick-up, we will dump and rinse your totes on site. Your new totes will be ready for use to repeat the cycle! There is no use for liners.

At the end of each month, we can provide you with a specialized report informing you how much “waste” your business diverted from the landfill. 
*This is upon request only.
