Up to 50% of the waste that goes to landfill is organic, mostly food waste.
When food scraps go to landfill they don’t decompose as nature intended. Starved of oxygen they break down anaerobically, producing methane gas - which is 30 times worse than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas. As if that wasn’t enough, this process also produces leachates which toxify our soils and water.
