Royal Waste provides 64-gallon plastic toters at Your Location, along with training for your staff and signage indicating what content is compostable to make the process easy.
Depending on frequency and volume Royal Waste picks up Full Toters as needed, replacing old containers with new ones and ensuring all containers are power washed, sanitized and deodorized.
Collected Organics are hauled to Royal's transfer station to be spread on the tipping floor for contaminant removal. Sorters and pickers remove any plastics and other non-organic waste for separate recycling.
Once cleaned of contaminants, the food waste is run through a press to remove excess liquids and is now ready for delivery to McEnroe Farms and other participating organic composting facilities.
Upon Arrival at McEnroe Farms organic food waste is used to create compost, feedstock, and planting mix, creating a closed loop system that turns waste into a reusable asset for sustainable waste diversion and organic farming.
