+ Food Waste Composting Services
RoHo Compost works with businesses to design and implement composting programs that separate inedible food waste into a non-contaminated "organics" waste stream, that can be composted. We provide partner organizations with containers to separate their organics, which we collect and replace regularly, per the needs of the client. Since Spring 2017, RoHo has diverted over 2.2 million pounds of food waste from landfills, to compost facilities.
+The Pulp Project
The Pulp Project is an exciting Initiative, and to our knowledge, the first of its kind. In collaboration with East Coast Co-Packing, we capture juice pulp at their facility that would normally go to compost, or at worst landfill, and convert it to smoothies and juices, pestos and dips. At least 50% of the resulting products are directed towards food insecure populations. Our ambition is to distribute these healthy, delicious and low cost products to schools
