Summary of presentation by Andrew Cassily, Resource Conservation Manager at Harford County Public Schools (MD) and Justen Garrity from Veteran Compost:

- Two ways of collecting compostable waste: in the cafeteria or in the kitchen
- Make sure you have enough containers - you don't want to fill up your containers to the top as it will become too heavy
- Composting can eliminate smells when you separate it out from regular trash
- Secure your compost containers to keep pests out
- Work with a composting company that can provide clean bins after every pickup so staff do not have to worry about cleaning up bins
- Regular trash becomes lighter when you separate out food waste, making it easier for staff to handle
- Commercial composting is different than residential composting - you can compost more stuff in commercial composting (meat, dairy, fish bones)
- Composting takes 2 to 3 months with commercial composting as opposed to 8 months with standard composting
