We believe in creating systems that minimizes food waste and are very happy to be part of the EU-funded Interreg project Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) which focus on source separation of food waste from Municipalities and the Hospitality Industry. The aim of the project is to get a high-quality end-product and minimizing organic waste going to landfill.
What is Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT)?
Instead of a fixed cost for waste-collection, the cost depends on how much waste is collected giving the ‘producer of the waste’ a financial incentive to minimize the waste.
