Waste

57.50 Points

Food decomposes on its own in nature, yet food waste accounts for nearly 50% of all municipal solid waste in landfills. Over 90% of plastics are never recycled.

Landfills are layered deep with solid waste, making it impossible for oxygen to reach biodegradable food waste, and preventing it from decomposing for hundreds of years. chi SPACCA reduces food waste before it is created and disposes of it properly by:

  1. 1

    Cardboard, plastic, paper, glass and aluminum are recycled

  2. 2

    Pre and post consumer waste is composted

  3. 3

    No bottle water served

  4. 4

    Grease is recycled into biodiesel or energy
