Food Waste Recycling Programs

For Your Home or Restaurant

Athens Services provides food waste recycling programs for both residential and food service establishments. The collected material is brought to our compost facility American Organics, where it will be processed into nutrient rich compost for agricultural end users.

We currently have food waste recycling programs for the cities of Los Angeles, West Hollywood, and Redondo Beach, and we are working with other municipalities to expand further.

We are also a certified processor for the City of Los Angeles’ Commercial Food Waste Recycling Program, helping businesses divert their food waste from landfills into valuable soil amendment.

Why Is Food Waste Recycling Important?

On average, a restaurant disposes more than 50 tons of organics waste per year. 76% of this waste is organics and can be recycled. However, if not hauled and processed by a permitted food waste recycling company like Athens Services, 100% would be sent to a landfill.
