Did you know, food waste is a major contributor of methane gas, which is 2x more damaging to the environment than carbon dioxide?

Compostable materials
When food ends up in landfills, it rots and creates methane. 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions come from food waste that are avoidable.

The City of Calgary’s recycling and organics waste bylaws require companies to have both recycling bins as well as green bins for compostable food waste and organics collection.

To be part of the greener solution and to be compliant with the City’s bylaws, many of our customers requested us to pickup their organics from their offices.

Our customers expressed their frustration and recycling service fatigue in dealing with multiple vendors, contracts, and terms – not to mention higher costs. They said, “since PULP SHRED is already collecting our secure office paper, electronics, and cardboard for shredding & recycling, could you collect our food waste as well.”

At PULP SHRED, We Listened!
