Philadelphia, PA recycling food scraps compost parks & rec

In Progress

The City of Philadelphia partnered with Bennett Compost to launch an initiative to process food scraps from up to 156 Philadelphia Parks & Recreation (PPR) centers. Approximately 25% of the resulting compost will be used by the FarmPhilly youth education program and the Department of Parks and Recreation. By contracting Bennett Compost to service local businesses the city will save costs on collection and disposal. The initiative is designed to capture about 150 tons of food waste annually.
