Why Organics Recycling is Important

It might seem that organic food waste will harmlessly breakdown in landfills, however, that is not the case. Food waste has a big impact on the environment. As food rots, it releases methane – a harmful greenhouse gas that is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide.

Recycling or composting organic food is good for the environment; it saves water by helping amend soil, reducing water run-off and creating space in landfills.
