Food Waste Services

Providing Nationwide Service
in Food Waste Removal

ReConserve®  helps leading food manufacturers and small to medium size food companies nationwide with sanitary and efficient removal of breads, cakes, candies, chips, cookies, crackers, doughs, flours, pastas, snack foods, tortillas, pizzas, nuts, cereal grains and related food by-products. This important service frees these companies to focus on their business — manufacturing quality food products.

We also help manufacturers work toward a reduced landfill objective by providing dependable custom designed bulk removal systems and reliable service assuring the food waste is fully recycled.

Our plants utilize the ReConserve process which takes food waste, separates out non-edible material, then mixes, grinds and dries the mixture into DBP®, our brand of dried bakery product. DBP® is a high-energy, nutrient dense, highly palatable dried component for livestock feed with a greater nutrient value than corn.

current removal practices, and available space. Based on this review, ReConserve custom designs the most efficient system to meet the specific needs and circumstances, addressing the highest levels of safety and sanitation, meeting and exceeding OSHA guidelines, while minimizing the client’s labor requirements.

We closely monitor the installation process to eliminate interruptions to our client’s production output. After installation, we conduct periodic reviews to ensure all equipment is maintained to meet state and local regulations and guarantee total destruction of our client’s branded product.

ReConserve offers several bulk loading system options:

Family of Stationary Compactors
Self-contained Roll-off Compactors
  • Family of Stationary Compactors engineered for efficiency and reduce spillage
  • Self-contained Roll-off Compactors ideal for low- to mid-volume plants with limited space

  • Mobile Packer/Front Loaders ideal for small volume plants needing economical alternatives to landfill options

Compactors were the first type of bulk systems offered to food manufacturers. Over time ReConserve has developed compactors better suited for condensing food waste, resulting in lower transportation costs and addressing food safety compliance issues.

Our enclosed compactor container and dumper systems are engineered for a positive seal around a dock door, eliminating the need for employees to leave the building while disposing of food waste carts. This feature enhances your sanitation program by preventing exposure to outside elements and odor, as well as the possibility of contamination by mold, insect infestation, birds, or dust.

Elevated Bulk Systems were developed as an alternative way to handle food waste. The all-electric system is best suited for bread and/or dough operations, eliminating the need for hydraulics.

ReConserve offers a choice of EBS configurations:

  • Rear-load single or dual chute
  • Side-load single or dual chute

A dual chute configuration allows the trailer to remain stationary during the loading process, maximizing weight.

About 80% of material is loaded through the front chute and automatically shifted to the rear while completing the loading process.
