Commercial Food Waste Collection Feasibility

Commercial Food Waste Collection Study

NewGen was retained by the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) to conduct a commercial food waste collection feasibility assessment concentrated on the challenge of providing cost-effective commercial collection of organic food waste, thus increasing landfill diversion rates. The comprehensive, regional assessment spanned both public and private waste generators (restaurants, grocery stores, commercial food processors, etc.) and covered a 13-county area including more than 6.5 million people. The NewGen Project Team developed a market leading 5-year action plan to facilitate the cost-effective increase in the diversion of food and food waste to the landfill.
