The MassDEP updated commercial organics waste ban now requires all businesses that generate 1000 pounds or more of food waste per week to divert that material from disposal. Stores that place banned items in the trash run the risk of solid waste facilities rejecting their waste, being charged additional fees, and receiving enforcement from MassDEP.

Produce trimmings, food scraps and spent grain often comprise 40-60% or more of the waste stream for groceries, brew pubs and restaurants. Instead of trashing this waste you can fulfill the state requirement with CERO to upcycle your food waste into nutrient rich compost. With CERO your waste becomes a productive environmental resource.

At CERO Cooperative, the only local W/MBE worker-owned composting services business, helping customers manage organic waste is all we do. We understand that every business is unique and CERO knows how to create a custom composting plan that reduces waste and meets the needs of each client partner. CERO will make you great at composting!

CERO is proud that our composting partners include Short Path Distillery, Daily Table, and Wegmans Groceries. Learn more about how CERO can custom-fit a composting program for your food or brewing business in Eastern MA.
