This map was developed to connect residents, businesses, and institutions with solid waste services; and to connect haulers, composters, and food rescue agencies to sources of food and food scraps. The goal is to make it easier to reduce waste and save natural resources.
Here you will find facilities that accept various materials for food rescue, recycling, composting, and disposal, such as food shelves, transfer stations and composters. As you zoom in closer, you will find businesses and institutions (such as restaurants, grocery stores, markets, hospitals, schools, food manufacturers, assisted living facilities, correctional facilities, and more) with the estimated tons of food scraps they might generate. Zooming in will also reveal local food shelves where quality food can be donated for people in need. You can map and find your local solid waste management entity by clicking on the box in the map layers section.

Disclaimer: This map, and the database that supports it, contains inaccuracies. With over 6,000 entries and a near constant opening and closing of businesses around the state, it is challenging to keep up-to-date information. However, ANR and other government entities will continually work together to make improvements and corrections. Weekly food scrap tonnages for food scrap generators are estimates only. For more information on how data on food scrap generators was collected and how tonnage was calculated, visit the map launch page here.
