For example, restaurants, supermarkets, hospitals and universities generate organic waste – whether it is anything from mowing their laws to feeding their clients – organic waste is produced. Many organizations have their own organic waste diversion initiatives in place or partner with private industry or local governments to handle their organic waste stream.
