Innovative Food Waste Collection Business Enters Tompkins County
Natural Upcycling (NU), Upstate New York’s leading food waste collection company, is excited to announce that it has entered the Tompkins County market effective November 1, 2016. Natural Upcycling has aqcuired the food scraps collection business of P&S Excavating/Cayuga Compost, a prominent local composting operation, so they can expand their focus on producing a high quality soil amendment for their customers. All material collected within Tompkins County will continue to be delivered to Cayuga Compost, just as it has in the past.
Natural Upcycling is experienced in food waste collection with leading businesses such as Wegmans Food Markets as well as major university and foodservice customers. NU uses an efficient collection system that allows customers to retain food scrap bins on-site, where totes are cleaned and sanitized upon collection, eliminating any odor or pest issues.
Natural Upcycling continues to grow its footprint in line with New York State’s goal of increasing the diversion of food waste away from landfills in the coming years. Through its acquisition of Cayuga Compost’s collection business, NU strives to expand Tompkins County’s landfill diversion efforts and consolidate its reputation as a leader in food waste recycling efforts.
Natural Upcycling is based in Linwood, New York and has operations in Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse metropolitan markets. NU uses a combination of composting and anaerobic digestion to recycle inedible food waste, with a tailored approach for each client.
