East End Countertop Recycler Pilot
Join your community in tackling food waste by piloting FoodCycler™ technology in your home.
In partnership with Food Cycle Science, Long Island Organics Council will offer FoodCycler™ units at a subsidized price to residents to use in their homes.
About the pilot project
The FoodCycler™ pilot project will measure the feasibility of in-home composting of food waste to help protect the environment and extend the lifespans of our regional landfills and reduce waste at our transfer station.
The In-Home Food Waste Diversion Solution
The End of Food Waste Starts Here. The Food Cycler makes it easy for anyone to make a positive environmental impact. It’s an effortless alternative to composting, and it reduces the volume of food waste by up to 90%. Food scraps and uneaten leftovers that would otherwise end up in a landfill are broken down into a nutrient-rich plant food that can be mixed right into your garden soil. It’s a simple, mess-free way to reduce food waste in your home.
* The FoodCycler™ can be viewed as a complement to (not necessarily a replacement for) backyard composting or digesters.
About The FoodCycler™
FoodCycle Science's residential device is called FoodCycler™. It can hold up to 1 kg of food waste. The device dries and grinds food waste (fruit cores, vegetable peels, dairy, chicken bones, and more) into a dry, odorless by-product significantly reduced in weight and volume from its unprocessed state. The end product is free from bacteria, and weed seeds and food-borne pathogens are eliminated in the process.
The usual retail cost of a FoodCycler™ is $400 - $600. Thanks to a subsidy from Food Cycle Science, and the Long Island Organics Council, participants will purchase the FoodCycler™ at the discounted price of $249 or $369 depending on which model they choose.
* The Long Island Organic does not receive any financial benefits or incentives from participating in this program.
