McDonald's to Turn Waste into Compost


Today the world's largest chain of fast food restaurants, McDonald's will start transforming its waste into compost. The step is part of an eco-friendly trial of the corporation in Great Britain.

Instead of plunking in a landfill, the company will convert its waste food along with paper and cardboard into compost which will be used for agricultural means on farms. A two week test is expected to save up to 40 tons of waste from McDonald's restaurants.

"We are always looking for ways to move closer to our goal of sending zero waste to landfill and the composting trial in Dorset is an important example of this," outlined Marie-Louise ter Beek, the environment manager of the fast-food corporation.

She also said that the company performed a number of other attempts to reduce its environmental impacts. The initiatives such as energy-from-waste in Sheffield restaurants proved to be successful and reduced McDonald's carbon impact from disposing waste in the region by 54%.

The environment manager also added that in case the trial proves to be successful, the company would extend its green scheme to other regions of the country.

It is worth mentioning that if the scheme was used by all 1,200 McDonald's restaurants in Great Britain, the overall amount of waste saved would be 90,000 tons a year.
