Q: What happens to the Food Scraps?

A: Food Scraps can be turned into a few different projects. Our Food Scraps are picked up by a company called Natural Upcycling. They focus on a process called anaerobic digestion which can turn food scraps into a renewable resource – such as electricity or natural gas!
