Food Waste Prevention Guide

Here are some practical tips for preventing and reversing food waste.


  • Create a compost area in the backyard and section it off for each phase of the composting process; partitions for sectioning them can be made from wooden pallets.
  • Buy a composter, often found at hardware stores, for the backyard.
  • Save food waste such as meat, pasta, rice, dairy, vegetables, fruits and coffee grinds in the kitchen using buckets, and donate it to local community composting centers or programs
  • Save vegetables and fruits in containers and deliver them to community gardens.
  • Sign up for a commercial food composting service for twice weekly pick-up of food waste for composting for a small fee.
