Source Reduction of Food Waste Guidance

Source Reduction of Food Waste Guidance

Over the course of 2017, MassDEP and RecyclingWorks in Massachusetts engaged stakeholders to develop a new set of best management practices for preventing food waste in commercial kitchens (the top priority according to the US EPA Food Recovery Hierarchy.) The guidance document is now ready and available on the RecyclingWorks website: https://recyclingworksma.com/source-reduction-guidance/

This document rounds out RecyclingWorks’ guidance on food recovery, which also includes documents on food donation and source separation of food scraps. All of these best management practices are considered living documents.
