Countertop FoodCycler

The Township of Edwardsburgh Cardinal is excited to announce an innovative in-home food compost alternative system available to TWPEC residents as part of a 12-week pilot program, in partnership with Food Cycle Science Corporation.

According to Food Cycle Science, up to 50% of household waste is composed of food waste, a major contributor of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Food Cycle’s Foodcycler™ units speed up the natural decomposition process, turning food waste into a dry, odourless, nutrient-dense byproduct in 4-8 hours. An in-home FoodCycler™ unit can reduce your household’s food waste by 90% and lead to a 95% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from food waste.

Edwardsburgh Cardinal is seeking 100 residents that would like to participate in the pilot program and purchase a FoodCycler™ machine at a subsidized price. Participants will need to track the use of their machine each week and complete a short survey at the end of the 12-week period so that Food Cycle Science can estimate the total impact of the program.

Registration is now closed and all units have been reserved. Check in or subscribe to this page for possible future expansions of the project and Learn more about the program.
