  • On December 1 st , the Peninsula Compost Group opened what will be the largest composting facility in the US. At 500 TPD , 160,000 tons a year the facility signals a new era for material recovery and opportunity to achieve zero waste in the Delaware Valley. While curbside collection of organics is still several years away, food waste collection for composting is here NOW for food processors, supermarkets, restaurants, hospitals, Universities and other large food waste generators. What are the options for Food Waste Management among institutional and commercial facilities? What do we need to do in preparation?
  • Good afternoon. I am Maurice Sampson and my company is Niche Waste Reduction and Recycling Systems— Niche Recycling for short. Niche Recycling provides business to business expertise to make waste management more efficient, reducing costs and designing programs for waste reduction, recycling and composting. Niche Recycling designs sustainable waste management programs that are good for the bottom line and the environment

  • There are two main types of composting, aerobic and anaerobic. Anaerobic composting basically consists of piling up a bunch of organic materials, then letting them sit and rot.. Anaerobic bacteria are slow and inefficient, which means that your compost pile will have to sit there for at least a year, maybe longer, before the materials at the very bottom are fully composted. Second of all, microbes that do the decaying in anaerobic composting produce methane and sulfate gasses as a byproduct, something which we humans find very offensive. If you've always thought of composting as a smelly and gross process, now is the time to make an important clarification: it's anaerobic composting that's a smelly and gross process. Aerobic composting is an entirely different process. Just as the name would suggest, aerobic composting requires air, specifically oxygen, to complete its process. Aerobic bacteria are very efficient. They break down organic matter very rapidly, often times completing the full composting process in less than 6 weeks. Furthermore, aerobic microbes don't give off smelly gasses, which means that aerobic composting is a virtually odorless process! Benefits Adds beneficial microorganisms to the soil and promotes a dynamic and diverse soil food web Increases soil health􀂄 Increases plant disease resistance Increases soil water holding capacity and reduces soil erosion Improves soil compaction and increases aeration Buffers the soil pH Adds nutrients to the soil that are slowly available to plants Provides a manure management program
  • B, Retrofits: Moravian Court & Hamilton Village Moravian Court Recycling Center Located between Walnut and Sansom Street at 34th Street—directly behind the White Dog Cafe The Facility serves 22 establishments organized in two commercial facilities 435 University Office workers and Computer Data Center
  • Replaced 9 open dumpsters collecting trash 7 days a week to a 2 cubic yard compactor with two dumpsters collecting trash 3 days a week at a cost 20 percent reduced cost.
  • Design Issues Addressed Separated wet from dry at Moravian Court to address odor issues later adding composting

  • COMPOST MATTERS On-Site Commercial Food Waste Management Maurice M Sampson II Niche Waste Reduction & Recycling Systems, Inc The International House Philadelphia, Pennsylvania April 9, 2010
  • Wilmington Organic Recycling Center The start of a new era of material recovery
  •  Provide consultation to the clients representing the, municipal, commercial and institutional sectors  Make waste management more efficient  Reduce cost, volume and add recycling and composting “your waste management expert”
  • Theme: Selection and Management Onsite Food Waste Collection Systems Two types: Collection for Offsite Processing & Onsite In-Vessel  Quick Review: Composting Basics & Types of Composting  Lessons from Moravian Court: Evolution of Food Waste Collection and On Site Commercial Composting Systems  Guidance in selecting a system at your location  Q&A
  • Quick Review How Composting Works  Aerobic: composting with air  Anaerobic: composting without air  Compost happens regardless of method; some methods are faster than others
  • Quick Review Types of Composting  Bin Composting  Vermicomposting  Passive windrow  In-vessel   Turned windrow  Aerated static pile
  • Quick Review - Types of Composting Compost Bin Vermicomposting
  • Quick Review -Types of Composting Aerated Static Pile Passive/Turned Windrow
  • Quick Review - Types of Composting In-Vessel Composting  Composting in drums, silos or Channels  Uses controlled aeration system  Provides optimal conditions  Can be a facility or an appliance
  • Quick Review - Types of Composting In-Vessel Composting – Appliances Accelerated Compost “Rocket” Moravian Court “Earth Tub”
  • Lessons: Moravian Court Recycling Facility Established 2004  Full service commercial waste management operation  Funded by PADEP and University of Pennsylvania  serves 22 establishments - 9 retailers - 5 restaurants, - 4 vendor food court, - 2 Coffee Shops - University Offices for 435 - Computer Data Center
  • Moravian Court Recycling Facility Facility Constructed to Resolve Crisis  Trash room constructed in 1998 to allow for construction of pedestrian corridor  Problematic after five years: nine unsanitary dumpsers, no recycling Mission for Niche : Solve the Problem  Eliminate the odor problem  Provide for material & organics recycling
  • Moravian Court Recycling Facility Waste Reduction & Recycling  Waste Reduction: 80% volume reduction going from 9 open dumpsters to only 2; and from 7 to 3 days per week of collection  Recycling: Added dumpsters for mixed paper & commingled recyclable containers; reduce baler size for cardboard  Result: Reduced cost for waste removal; no cost or payment to tip cardboard
  • Moravian Court Recycling Facility Organics Recycling  Composting: Separated wet from dry at Moravian Court to address odour issues later adding on site composting  Waste Vegetable Oil: Replaced 55 open top drums of waste vegetable oil for a closed tank collection system
  • Lessons: Composting at Moravian Court Management  Commitment from the highest level of management and on-going management is critical to success  Material and Organic Recycling should be implemented as part of a total waste management system  Quality control is critical—starting in the kitchen  Operational protocols and orientation for workers, managers and the Cook
  • Lessons: Composting at Moravian Court Functional  Sixty percent volume reduction: nearly eliminates need for collection (from 3x week to 2x month)  Requires off site curing (4 to 6 weeks)  Earth Tubs are effective in composting materials but bulk feed is labour intensive,  Operationally incompatible in this setting This experience led to a search for better on-site options
