Less food to landfill toolkit


(Less food to landfill toolkit) More food reaches landfills and incinerators than any other single material in municipal solid waste (MSW). Fifty-two million tons of food is sent to landfills annually (equating to 21 percent of landfill volume), plus another 10 million tons is discarded or left unharvested on farms.
