The NRA is the trade association for the largest commercial generators of post-consumer food residuals; the EPA estimates 97.5% of the food residuals are landfill bound. The USCC is the trade association for composting and other permitted alternatives to landfills. Working in unison is natural and necessary for the infrastructure and support systems to develop so the foodservice industry may embrace zero waste practices.
At the USCC Annual Conference January 17 - 20 in Austin, TX, the POWER - Perishable Organics Waste to Energy - session will highlight the NRA's role in promoting post-consumer food residual recycling. The ZWZ Blog post, Get EmPOWERed at the USCC Conference, gives the session's full description.
Safety and education are another common ground for the NRA & USCC. The ZWZ Blog post, Safety & Education - A Necessary Marriage, showcases each organizations' primary safety and education focus. Joint platforms will naturally flow as the NRA & USCC work together.
Stay tuned for exciting developments in the budding USCC | NRA relationship. Exciting, important seeds were planted in already fertile ground!
