Recycling Program

Composting Food Waste

Keeping A Good Thing Going

Food waste is a growing problem in our modern society. Approximately one-third of the food produced worldwide never makes it to the table and ends up as waste, occupying around 25%
of our ever-shrinking landfills. This is not just a food waste issue, it is also a waste of land, water, labor, and energy, and even contributes to methane emissions, a potent greenhouse gas.

Commercial composting is a great alternative to the disposal of food waste in landfills.
Composting consists of combining organic waste with agents such as woodchips that accelerate decomposition, resulting in a nutrient-rich soil that can be used as fertilizer. It is a resourceful way to turn food waste into a useful product that can help farmers increase their crop yields, provide a local resource for gardens, parks, and landscapers, restore habitats, and improve contaminated or degraded soils.

In addition, composting lowers greenhouse gases by improving carbon sequestration in the soil and by preventing methane emissions through aerobic decomposition, as methane-producing microbes are not active in the presence of oxygen. The benefits of composting are many, and states are looking into diverting organic waste from entering landfills by increasing commercial composting practices.

Doing Our Part

for the environment

Dear Valued Customers,

We are excited to share with you our ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability and our dedication to making a positive impact on our planet. At BJ’s, we are proud to announce the implementation of our comprehensive composting and recycling programs. 


One of the key initiatives we have undertaken is the introduction of commercial composting. By participating in this program, we are diverting organic waste from landfills and giving it a new purpose. Instead of simply discarding food scraps and other organic materials, we are now channeling them into a controlled composting process. This process allows us to transform these materials into nutrient-rich compost that can be used to enrich soil quality and promote sustainable agriculture. By participating in our composting program, you can feel confident that your organic waste is being re-purposed in an environmentally responsible manner.


In addition to our composting efforts, we have also prioritized commercial recycling as part of our sustainable business practices. Through our comprehensive recycling program, we collect and process a wide range of recyclable materials, including paper, plastics, glass, and metals. By properly sorting and recycling these materials, we contribute to the conservation of natural resources and the reduction of
energy consumption.


Our recycling initiatives align with our commitment to building a circular economy where materials are reused rather than wasted. We believe that by working together, we can help make a significant difference in our environment. We invite you, our valued customers, to join us in these efforts by participating in our composting and recycling programs. By separating your compostable and recyclable materials, you become an active
participant in our mission to create a more sustainable future. Together, we can reduce waste, minimize our ecological footprint, and contribute to the well-being of our planet.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership in our sustainability journey. We look forward to sharing more updates on our environmental initiatives and working with you to make a positive impact on our world.
