Food & Beverage Waste Destruction Services

If your facility has to deal with food and beverage waste, by-products or off-spec liquids, you need an environmental services provider with the technology, facilities and expertise to dispose of these materials safely, responsibly, and cost-effectively.

At Waste Management, we offer a variety of economical treatment technologies to manage and dispose of your unmarketable or unsellable food and beverage products, by-products, and off-spec liquid inventory. Rely on us for the experience, equipment, reverse logistics and infrastructure to handle any volume of bulk or packaged liquids.

  • A Single Point of Contact - You will have a designated Waste Management representative who will manage all your program needs.
  • Collection and logistics - Working with your on-site management team, we will develop a collection schedule that minimally impacts your facility's operations.

  • Assured product destruction - When regulations call for the complete destruction of your by-productions, expired or off-spec materials, we will take advantage of waste-to-energy plants when appropriate and available to assure complete destruction of the materials in question.
