Food Processors, Looking for a reliable disposal option?
Looking for food waste disposal? From fruits and vegetables to bakery and bread, we love maximizing the value of organic waste. Our Energy Garden – certified and permitted by the Ontario Ministry of Environment – turns high-calorie ingredients into clean energy using a process called anaerobic digestion.
Haulers, We are open!
If you need additional hours for drop-off please get in touch as we are permitted to accept materials 6 days a week, 365 days a year. For more details call us toll free: 855.321.7600
Farmers and Gardeners, Get in on the nutrient action!
We supply top quality natural fertilizers for fields, lawns and gardens in bags and bulk. Either come pick up, or we can arrange for delivery (minimum quantities apply).
It’s what’s on the inside that counts. Our depackaging equipment removes boxes, cans, buckets, and bags — to name a few — to unlock your food waste potential!
End to End Management
We provide end-to-end seamless support. At your business or institution, we can provide training and on-the-ground support with bin suggestions, signage, and training. We can help you connect with your hauler. Where others see waste, we see a cycle of energy and nutrients, and we want to help you plug into that cycle!
Anaerobic Digestion: It’s part of our culture. Naturally occurring bacteria chow down on organic waste (think pizza crusts and fish guts) and produce biogas. We provide optimal environments for the bacteria to do their work. Then we turn that biogas into electricity. Our low solids anaerobic digester works 24/7 to serve the London region, turning organic waste into clean energy and natural fertilizers.
Throughout the development of this facility we have met with a Public Liaison Committee (PLC) and neighbours at regular intervals to communicate about the process. Everyone is excited to send organic waste to this facility! Here’s why…
It’s a Reliable Organic Waste Disposal Option Food processors and grocery stores have already adapted to our food separation processes-and have found little to no impact on operational efficiency. Businesses enjoy regularly scheduled organic waste pickup while Harvest helps guide your staff through the implementation of simple separation processes.
It Creates Local, Renewable Energy The more food waste recovered means less food waste dumped into shrinking landfill space. Through our process, businesses and communities can help produce clean, renewable energy right here, supporting the Province of Ontario’s renewable energy policy.
It Helps Preserve Our Soils By recycling organic waste, communities meet the challenges at the intersection of waste, agriculture and energy in the 21st century including the nutrient management plans required in Ontario.
It Helps Manage Costs Food waste is heavy and the transportation and disposal costs for trash are generally higher than those for food waste. Speak with a Harvest Power representative to see how you can save-and help save our community.
With state-of-the-art features, including environmental and odour controls built in from the start, we believe this Energy Garden is a model for communities across North America.
We’ve been operating since the Fall of 2013, turning organic waste from local businesses, food processors and grocery stores into clean energy and natural fertilizers. Alas, we currently do NOT take residential organic waste. But if you are an organizer of an event with over 500 persons and need a place to bring your scraps, contact us and we will work with you to help you achieve your zero waste and recycling targets.
Q: Can I come drop off materials?
A: We only accept organic waste materials from commercial businesses or haulers.
