If you are planning to add food waste to a new facility or a facility upgrade, it’s imperative to base your business plan and facility design on accurate data.

The ECS Food Waste Feedstock Study is a design tool based on quantitative census & NAICS code information that is proven to be 90-99% accurate in predicting the actual amount of food waste that can be diverted from cities and counties in Canada and the United States.

This technical service is appropriate for haulers or municipalities that are

  • determining feasibility and planning future programs
  • planning to upgrade their facility from windrow to aerated composting or
