Organic/Compost

B-P provides safe, dependable and sustainable organic waste diversion and recycling programs for your business. The Massachusetts Commercial Organics Waste Ban requires all business and institutions disposing of over one ton of organic material per week to divert that organic material from disposal as trash. So let’s turn your food waste, food-soiled paper products and plant debris into beneficial compost.

  • Front of house and back of house collection programs
  • We use Carts, small specialized front load containers and compactors in our program
  • We use local farms and commercial anaerobic digesters to process your organic materials
  • We can also help you with on-site solutions
