Understanding the intricacies of organics can help you make better, greener choices for your business.
The first thing you’ll want to do is look at the bill from your waste hauler.
Given the size of NYC, it’s hard for haulers to measure the exact amount of waste on a daily, or even weekly basis. Typically, everything is measured once, and then a monthly fee is determined based on that number.
When adding compost collection to your recycling routine, it’s important to re-negotiate your contract. The waste hauler will charge you an additional fee for new collection; but your landfill waste should shrink significantly, reducing your bill.
