OUR MISSION

Our mission at Un-Waste is to encourage a global shift back into a circular economy by inspiring individuals to rethink the idea of organics as a resource rather than as waste.

our service

Un-Waste is an Organics Recycling and Microhauling business that takes food scraps from residents and small businesses to be recycled into premium compost, organic fertilizer, and renewable electricity at our partner facility, Trenton Renewables. By recycling your organics, you can help to mitigate the amount of greenhouse gas emissions created from sending them to the landfill where they emit methane, a potent greenhouse gas.  

 

This easy to use and seamless service is available to residents and businesses along the Central Jersey Shore.  Anyone that is willing to live a greener more sustainable lifestyle that directly impacts the environment is welcome to reach out.  Through our efficient and high quality services, we assist a wide variety of establishments from single apartment dwellers to medium scale commercial entities.  

Additionally, we specialize in direct haul operations and logistics for high-capacity organic waste producers for small to medium scale commercial entities.   We offer staff education and training on source separated organics.

By way of various social outreach platforms - live and virtual - we are able to implement local community action with a global state of mind. 

a message from OUR founder

To Anyone Who Takes the Time to Read This,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your interest in Un-Waste and for taking the time to be here.  It's been a long, strenuous (albeit exciting) rollercoaster of a ride to get to this point, and I'd like to say that we're only just getting started!  From picking up buckets of food scraps in the trunk of my Chevy Cobalt from just two customers in Asbury Park to recycling food waste across multiple towns in three different counties in Central New Jersey, to say I'm grateful is an understatement.  I hope I can not only continue to grow this business/movement, but bring awareness and understanding to our mission as well.  It is, and has been, the seed of an idea that propelled me to embark on this journey in the first place.

 

The legacy of my father, who helped carry the weight (literally and figuratively) of food waste with me through this process, will live on continuously as the backbone of this company. It's truly bittersweet to see how Un-Waste has grown since his passing because it wouldn't have been able to grow in this way without him.  I'm amazed at how much I've seen the importance of recycling our food waste in New Jersey grow and I can't wait to see what the future holds.  I hope you'll follow us on this journey to see just how valuable recycling our organics is to the environment and the world around.

All the best,

Lauren
