United States Food Waste

Food waste is the single largest category of #material (by weight) #deposited in #USA#MunicipalLandfills, where it emits #methane#greenhouse#gas. Landfills are the third-largest source of methane emissions in the United States, accounting for approximately 15% of these #emissions in 2020, according to the #EPA. The methane emissions from #MSWlandfills in 2020 were approximately equivalent to the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from about 20.3 million #passenger#vehicles driven for one year or the #CO2 emissions from nearly 11.9 million homes’ #energy use for one year.
