Feed the Earth is our campaign to bring creative solutions for food scrap collection to towns and cities. Food waste occurs in many places - homes, businesses, and institutions. Each require a customized approach. Learn about some of our partnerships below.

Middletown

Business District Transfer Station

Feed the Earth - Middletown is a food scrap collection initiative for businesses in the Downtown Sanitation District. The program, which is free to participants, involves outreach, signage, education and containers, as well as collection services. Every ton that is diverted improves the environment and saves the City of Middletown money on their disposal fees. To see press and a list of participating restaurants, click here.
