The Compost King of New York

As mentioned in New York Times’ The Compost King of New York, Michael Reali, Regal’s Vice President voiced both his stance and commitment in diverting food waste from landfills. Whereas other companies struggled in their composting efforts due to high contamination rates, the team at Regal Recycling seemed to quickly grasp this ambitious responsibility with ease. As a full day past of Regal’s composting trucks entering its material recovery facility, there stood a 20-foot mound of collected organic waste from fruit wholesalers. After the crew removed any extraneous material, the decontaminated pile was loaded and ready to be transported to McEnroe Organic Farm in upstate New York. Here the decontaminated organic waste goes through an arduous process but ultimately gets to live a second life either to nourish and sustain the farm or as topsoil to be sold to the local community. Through the effort of Michael Reali and his team at Royal Waste Services, organic food waste now can be seen as a resource, therefore closing the loop of sustainability and recycling.

Robert Moses Middle School Kids Work to Keep Their School Green

NORTH BABYLON – Sixth-graders from Robert Moses Middle School are working hard to keep their school green.

The students, who are part of the school’s Environmental Recycling Club, go from classroom to classroom collecting paper and plastic bottles for recycling.

“It’s really good for the kids, educationally,” says teach Chris Brodmerckel. “They really grab ahold of it and want to do more for their community.”

Last year alone, the student kept 2 tons of recyclables out of landfills.

Food Waste Diversion In Heart Of Manhattan

Motivation, infrastructure and economics are key to implementation of office composting at The Durst Organization, one of New York City’s largest family-owned real estate developers. The program is the brainchild of Helena Durst, a co-vice president and fourth-generation family member, who is leading the charge to green the company’s building management practices. Partnering with Durst is Royal Waste Services Inc., in Hollis, New York, a hauler that collects, processes and transports the separated organics, and McEnroe Organic Farm, near Millerton, New York, where the material is composted. Durst hopes to ultimately exapnd the program beyond just the company’s headquarters at the Bank of America Tower in Manhattan to tenants in the company’s sizeable commercial real estate portfolio.
