Compost Organic Waste with Green Compost Service Provider™ Turn Compost

Compost your organic waste with Turn Compost, a Certified Green Compost Service Provider™ verified by the Green Restaurant Association. Composting with Turn Compost is as easy for your restaurant as having the Turn Compost receptacle located in your kitchen. Turn Compost picks up the food waste from restaurant locations, just like a trash or recycling day. They take the food, turn it into compost, and deliver it to farmers to grow new food. When a restaurant diverts its food waste with Turn Compost, it can earn 25 GreenPoints™ towards becoming a Certified Green Restaurant®.

With the average restaurant producing 100,000 pounds of garbage a year, implementing a comprehensive composting program can reduce the annual garbage output by 50,000 lbs per year. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, food waste adds up, resulting in US restaurants collectively producing 22 to 33 billion pounds of food waste every year. Through composting and recycling, restaurants can divert 90% of their waste from landfills. This decreases the amount of an individual restaurant’s waste ending up in landfills by 90,000 pounds a year. If every US restaurant followed these steps, the restaurant industry would prevent 20 to 30 billion pounds of food waste from reaching landfills annually.

“The Turn Compost Program continues to make composting food waste easy for restaurants. Thanks to Turn Compost's dedication to helping the environment, thousands of restaurants in Dallas will be able to reduce their environmental impact,” said Michael Oshman, CEO and founder of the Green Restaurant Association. “Lauren and her team have set an example in Dallas for restaurants and cities across the nation to follow.”
