White Castle Doubles Food Scraps Diversion Rate From Columbus-Area Stores

White Castle food waste compost
 
On Earth Day 2014, White Castle announced that in the last year, they have expanded food scraps diversion programs to 16 Columbus, Ohio-area restaurants and plants in Vandalia and Cincinnati, Ohio, doubling their diversion rate to almost 10 tons of food scraps per month. Collected food scraps are taken to an Ohio Mulch commercial composting facility, where they are processed into a soil amendment retailed as Green Envy. White Castle further closes the loop by purchasing Green Envy to boost flower production outside of their restaurants in Central Ohio. The corporation announced their sustainable initiatives, like food scraps diversion and energy efficient technology in newly constructed restaurants, have been effective at reducing the company’s carbon dioxide emissions by 1 percent each year since 2010.
