Data Corner: Average capacities of North American food scrap composters

Published: June 25, 2018


RRS conducted a survey sponsored by the Foodservice Packaging Institute (FPI) to collect information about North American composters that accept food scraps.

The chart below displays the average capacity of these composters by the type of processing system they employ.

Both size and system variance may be linked to feedstocks processed, community needs, local policy and funding available, as well as geographic factors.
