  2. 2. Got tons of food waste? We accept a full range of industrial, commercial and residential wastes from food production, processing and consumption:
  3. 3. We’ll take it! Food scraps and culls Past sell-by and recall Fats, oils, grease (FOG) DAF sludge & sweepings Dirty paper and cardboard (waxed and unwaxed) Pallets and other degradable packaging

  5. 5. compostable serviceware,
  6. 6. and BPI-certified compostable plastics.
  7. 7. Bio-resins/films/plastics without BPI certification may require degradability testing by McGill. Approved materials will receive McGill certification.
  8. 8. Here’s what you need to know:
  9. 9. All food waste must be source- separated ... no non-compostables. COMPOSTING YES COMPOSTING NO
  10. 10. We do not offer curbside or cart collection. Only roll-off box and tractor-trailer loads. 40-ton minimum charge per load.
  11. 11. This means if you bring us less than 40 tons, you will still be billed for 40 tons.
  12. 12. We are happy to work with self-haul customers, as well as third-party haulers offering curbside collection services, IF ...
  13. 13. The transport vehicle is commercially licensed.
  14. 14. The driver is CDL-licensed and wears a hard hat and safety vest while on site.
  15. 15. The transport vehicle can safely tip the load into our receiving pit without human intervention, i.e., no shoveling or manual dumping of containers
  16. 16. If your loads are too small to make direct hauling economical,
  17. 17. contact your city or county recycling coordinator for names of independent contractors providing cart or container pick-up services for compostables.
  18. 18. Here are 3 things we need to know to provide a quote:
  19. 19. 1. What are the estimated tons per year by waste type and volume? Don’t know? View the SlideShare title: Estimating volumes for composting.
  20. 20. 2. Do you want the quote to include trailer or roll-off box rental and/or transportation by McGill?
  21. 21. 3. If you want us to transport, what is the pick-up location?
  22. 22. Your McGill account rep may also ask for a recent TCLP or other lab report if the load will include industrial or special wastes.
  23. 23. Important tip:
  24. 24. If you want to ensure acceptance of your food waste, always include a healthy dollop of participant education in your diversion plan to eliminate non-compostable contaminants.
