In order to make the food manufacturing process as safe as possible, manufacturers must adhere to a strict set of guidelines from the FDA as well as municipal laws regarding methods of food manufacturing. Anything that doesn’t meet these quality standards is regarded as food waste, and so needs to be disposed of in a responsible manner. Additionally, every municipality has different requirements as to the liquids allowed to go down the drain, so any water used in the manufacturing process or the cleaning process (i.e. washdown water) can’t just be discharged into the sewers.
All forms of industrial food waste, whether it is washdown water, defective foodstuffs, or slurries from processing facilities, needs to be properly separated and disposed of. If a company is out of compliance with food waste regulations, they could be hit with hefty fines! In order to avoid any penalties, you need a company with experience in the waste disposal industry that’s able to manage all forms of food waste.
