Waste vs Composting
Waste can be disposed of in two major ways. The first way is via standard waste removal. Food and other organics are placed in the trash along with every other piece of waste. This waste is all taken to the landfill where its story ends. The second way is via recycling/composting. The majority of waste the we create every day (as high as 90%) can be recycled or composted in a way the does not harm or even helps the environment. Food waste falls into this category as it can be totally composted without any ill long term ill-effects. Click here to read more about organic waste composting.
Customers for Food and Organic Waste Recycling
The following is a list of common customers who are excellent sources to utilize Panda's food waste management services:
- Coffee shops
- Cafeterias (High school, University)
- Food Courts
- Food Processing Plant
Other businesses that have a large amount of standard waste can combine waste removal services with recycling and composting services in order to decrease their environmental footprint and possibly even reduce waste removal costs. Panda operates on a scheduled waste removal model, meaning that waste is removed at regular intervals, instead of a one-time deal.
Cost Advantage of Composting/Recycling
The primary cost of waste removal is the cost associated with dumping waste at the landfill. The waste is charged by weight, and as such the more you send, the more it will cost. There is no distinction between true garbage and food waste that can break down organically. A waste recycling and composting plan with Panda Environmental diverts waste from the landfill, and as such potentially lowers your waste removal costs.

"This is a letter of appreciation for the wonderful service we have been given since we started dealing with Panda Environmental in May, 2012. We appreciate the ability to increase or decrease the frequency of pick ups as required. Previously, we had been using one of the large waste removal companies and were tied into long term contracts which did not offer any flexbility. It was very frustrating and costly. Dealing with Panda has been a pleasure and the service has always been prompt and friendly. I would strongly recommend your service to other businesses."
