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?
It can also account for table scraps & leftovers that we have lost interest in and discarded.
How is food waste stored & collected?
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.
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 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
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. 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.
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. 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.
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.
BagEZ turns trash cans into a self-cleaning bin system.

Why BagEZ Works?
Mess & hassle-free home waste management
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.
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 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.
