Why pre-treat organics?

Pre-treatment is an alternative method to a conventional curbside compost program. Pre-treatment works by mashing and dehydrating household food waste and produces a sterile and odour-free soil amendment that is ~90% less in weight and volume. Pre-treatment doesn’t attract pests, is easy to store, and requires fewer collection days than other curbside compost programs.
