Zero-Waste Composting: Full Report

How Food Waste Can Help Conquer Climate Change and Prevent Disease
Executive Summary & Full Report, May 2013

Zero-waste composting considers the highest and best use for the people, material and energy at each step in the process. It requires that we make efforts to eat the food we buy, compost as close to the source as possible, and see that the end result of our compost has the highest benefit for the environment and the community by preserving and creating soil.

This project encompasses a comprehensive body of work completed by Eureka Recycling from 2010-2013 to determine the best design of a citywide composting program for the City of Saint Paul.
