Food Waste Management- Hassle Free Home Separation System

sMess Free Food Separation System

Improper food waste management has caused a valuable natural resource, organics to become a worldwide problem. Organic matter in landfills creates greenhouse gases that speed up global warming. Various educational food waste management programs tried to improve separation rates with minor success, so we decided on “A New Approach


What is unavoidable food waste?

food waste plate Unavoidable food waste is food that has turned, gone wrong, spoiled or no longer fit for consumption.

It can also account for table scraps & leftovers that we have lost interest in and discarded. 

 


How is food waste stored & collected?

garbage can outdoor recycling and green bin for food wasteGreen bins have been provided to make storing and collecting residential food waste easy.

The bins provided range from 13 to 35-gallon cart and 65 to 95-gallon. 

These large bins let garbage trucks do the heavy lifting. Collections times are improved & the garbage man avoids injury on the job.


The Problem:

food waste in landfill dumpsite bag managementFood waste in the wrong bin results in the loss of valuable natural resources & contamination of recyclable materials.

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?

yuck-factors food waste odorsYuck factors are one of the main causes of contamination. 

Existing, cost-effective & convenient ways to manage waste without it becoming another chore have failed. Bad odours, maggots, and preventing nuisance pests by performing regular bin cleaning have 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 few organic sorters help, but the population must get involved for real change.


Implemented Food Waste Management Solutions

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. Sorting trash where we make it, at home is vital. Separated waste helps facilities recycle better. However, finding a solution for everyone is not easy.

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. Making Food Waste Management mess & hassle-free 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.

A clean trash can is sitting in the driveway after the garbage truck takes the garbage away. 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.

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

small useless garage trash canRegular in-store trash bags do not fit the large 35, 65 or 95-gallon trash cans, so an extra bin or metal can with a lid that is between 20-32 gallons are used in the garage. Any bin occupies space, and in the garage it’s gold. Getting by without rubbing up against them is another task.

Using these bins is 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 adopted to improve collections, news articles of communities receiving penalties. This creates a short-term benefit, and people revert.
