An estimated 35 million tons of food is wasted each year, equalling $165 billion in food being disposed. The Indiana Recycling Coalition (IRC) is pleased to launch a new multi-stakeholder initiative to explore the issues that cause food waste, and to work to divert as much from disposal as possible. Over the coming months, the IRC will be hosting a series of targeted meetings to reveal the causes, hurdles and opportunities to saving more food at every rung of the waste management hierarchy — prevention, reuse, composting and digestion — to spur more opportunities and build a more comprehensive infrastructure to address Indiana’s food scrap challenge.
