The Guelph Mercury has covered our food waste research in recent news stories:
The City of Guelph was recently awarded the Ron Lance Memorial Award for having the highest rate of municipal waste diversion in Ontario (68% in 2012). The average 2012 residential diversion rate in Ontario was 47%. (www.guelphmercury.com/news-story/4329409-city-s-waste-diversion-rate-tops-ontario/)
We recently visited the City of Guelph’s recycling and organics processing facilities, as pictured above.
This is a newsletter highlighting some of the important findings from the Guelph Food Waste research. More detailed analysis will be forthcoming soon.
