Organics Recycling

Pioneers in sustainability

IWS was the first to offer organics recycling to New York City customers as early as 2003. Grocery stores, restaurants, stadiums, schools, and entertainment venues all depend on our organics recycling program to realize both their sustainability goals and regulatory requirements.

 

How does it work?

Organic waste is placed in dedicated containers and collected by our specialized, leak-proof vehicles. At the processing facility, your organic waste is converted into natural products such as nutrient-rich compost or fertilizer.

Organics recycling programs not only reduce dependance on landfills, but also help to reduce the greenhouse gas emitted in landfills during decomposition. By harnessing organic waste as a resource, we reduce our carbon footprint and contribute to the sustainability of our food chain.
