Introduction


​​FoodScraps360


is a residential food waste collection service created to help reduce the amount of plant matter from entering the municipal landfill where it produces methane, a potent greenhouse gas. With the climate crisis knocking on our door, we need to change our habits to reduce our carbon footprint. Composting household food scraps is an easy way to take a step in that direction. Foodscraps360 helps to make it even easier.

was born and raised in the foothills of the Adirondacks and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree at  SUNY Fredonia before returning to the Capital District in 1986.
At the age of 23,  I purchased a cozy A-Frame near the Sacandaga Reservoir, where I still  go to connect with nature. Always a self starter, I have worked for myself
​the majority of my career. I became involved in the anti-fracking issue here in New York and I am a founding member, and current facilitator of People of Albany United for Safe Energy - PAUSE, which is an affiliate of 350.org., and I am also on the Executive Committee of Zero Waste Capital District.
 















 Why did I  buy FoodScraps360?
When I think of all the waste that goes into landfills everyday and all the methane that is flared off into the atmosphere adding to global warming, I couldn't let such 
a valuable service as FoodScraps360 vanish.  Part of the mission of Zero Waste Capital District is to educate people on how to reduce waste by changing their habits. That mission is shared by the vision of FoodScraps360. I hope
to not only be of service in helping reduce the methane
​gas created by unnecessarily throwing food waste into
the landfill, but to also help educate our subscribers on other ways to reduce waste and contribute to a healthier, greener planet.

BioSoil Farm’s Food Waste Recycling Center is the most environmentally friendly option for processing organic household waste.  Their Food Waste Recycling Centers process food and organic waste in a closed unit in about 15-19 hours.  No methane is produced.  No CO2 is released.  The food waste is simply dehydrated and broken down into the raw material for their organic, sustainable fertilizer and their renewable fuel made from organic waste. “Food waste has multiple and significant negative impacts on people and the environment,” said BioSoil Farm CEO Chad Currin. “Diverting food waste from landfills reduces the need to use land as dumps and, decreases harmful methane gas. At BioSoil Farm, we
​make food waste into useful and sustainable products. BioSoil.Farm is located at the Glenville Industrial Park. Feel free to check them out at BioSoil.Farm
