Whirlpool Zera Food Recycler Makes Home Composting a Cinch

Friday, January 27th, 2017

According to the USDA, between 30-40 percent of our food supply gets wasted, ending up in the trash. Discarded food takes up more space in our landfills than any other category of waste. One alternative for homeowners, especially those with gardens, is to compost food waste instead of throwing it in the trash.
