Food Waste Management- Hassle Free Home Separation System
Improper food waste management has resulted in organics, a valuable natural resource to turn into a worldwide problem. Organic matter in landfills causes greenhouse gases that lead to global warming. Various educational food waste management programs have tried to improve separation rates with minor success, so we decided on “A New Approach“
The inefficiency we are trying to improve is the waste diversion rates at its source of generation, through convenience & ease.
What is unavoidable food waste?
It can also account for table scraps & leftovers that we have lost interest in and discarded.
How is food waste stored & collected?
The bin you are given can range from the small 13 to 35 gallon cart to a large 65 to 95 gallon bin.
The larger bins are being rolled out because they make collection easier. Garbage trucks with arms do the heavy lifting. This speeds up the collection & avoids the garbage man getting injured doing his waste management jobs.
Organics also emit greenhouse gases in landfills and cause them to reach capacity sooner because they render reusables to garbage.
Why does food waste contamination happen?
Existing, cost-effective & convenient ways to manage waste without it becoming another chore have failed. Bad odors, maggots, and preventing nuisance pests by performing regular bin cleaning has turned people off using their bin properly.
To prevent this mess & hassle organics get chucked & deposed of in the wrong bin. Most often, it ends up in the bin whose turn it is to be placed curbside.
The faster this messy waste gets taken away, the less of a hassle it can become, is the reasoning.
This attitude has caused waste diversion rates to stagnate.
The people who do sort their organic waste correctly help the process, but until more people actively get involved change, will be slow.
Implemented Food Waste Management Solutions
In Ottawa, diversion rates were horrendous. Rule makers realized the average person would not go above & beyond for the environment, but the contamination issue and waste capture rates still needed to be addressed. Guess What!
Ottawa did a U-turn & changed the rules. Now In Ottawa, everyday plastic bags are allowed in the green bins.
A new approach to food waste management.
Everyone wants to do the right thing and fight climate change as long as it’s easy. Separating waste at the source, where it’s generated, is the easiest way to address the diversion problem. However, it is not easy trying to find a working solution.
The thin plastic grocery & compostable kitchen bin liners used to dispose of food waste leaks when pilled on each other. This causes gunk to build up over time, which raises a stink & attracts pests, if not cleaned.
Larger compostable & trash bags available in stores hold waste easily, but they do not fit over the large bins.
BagEZ eliminates the problems holding change back. By making Food Waste Management mess & hassle-free, to encourages proper disposal and greater recovery. Its new approach to residential food waste diversion automatically betters the recycling collection process too. BagEZ does this by connecting your bag & bin.
BagEZ easily integrates into existing residential waste collection methods or systems with any disruption.
How BagEZ Helps improve diversion.
Everything yucky gets confined in the bag, & gets taken away during curbside collection, leaving you with a clean, fresh bin every time.
Imagine lifting the lid of your bin after the garbage truck has come by and finding a mess-free perfectly clean can, one that you did not have to spend any time cleaning.
Yes, you get clean bins every time minus the hassle.

Why BagEZ Works?
Mess & hassle-free home waste management
Every time your trash is collected you have a fresh clean can to start with. It literally feels like you are using a city bin, where all you do is chuck your scraps & walk on, never bothered, let someone else clean the mess.
BagEZ does exactly what it’s meant to– make waste management easy.
It’s made of solid steel & securely holds heavy bags up to 55lbs(25kgs) so you do not have to worry about bags slipping off.
When a bag gets full, replacing them with new bags is effortless & with no heavy lifting. The bag is already in the bin, where it needs to be. This allows you to use the bin to capacity.
Free up garage space
Regular in-store trash bags do not fit the large 35, 65 or 95 gallon trash cans, so an extra bin or metal can with lid that is between 20-32 gallons are used in the garage. These bins occupy space in the garage and make getting by without rubbing up against them a task.
Using these bins are also inefficient. As bags get full lifting them out becomes difficult, and you have to carry the heavy bag and toss it into your large bin.
With BagEZ everything happens in your large bin, eliminating all the extra inefficient work. Just better easier food waste management.
Why education, regulations, awareness & BagEZ is needed to improve capture.
Education & awareness has improved waste diversion rates across the region. The hiring of bin inspectors that tag improperly sorted waste in bins has increased. Punitive measures being adopted help improve the process, while news articles stating community members received a fine or their trash, was not collected, makes people improve their game, but eventually short-lived.
People are aware food waste is the largest cause of contamination in the recycling bin and garbage can, and yet it happens. This is because its management is a huge inconvenience.
BagEZ eliminates the inconvenience caused by waste in green bins or trash cans, without changing the way your bin is used. Lift your lid, drop it in & shut your lid, just as you do now, it’s that simple!
The elimination of yuck factors that cause improper food waste management, makes BagEZ a valuable tool in the recycling process. Awareness and education, let everyone know about the systems & tools available to help
To prevent climate change, business & governments must work together, or change will happen at snails pace, & that’s time we do not have.
Daily more than a (86,000) eighty six thousands tons of garbage is produced in Canada.
