Grocery stores make reducing food waste a priority in Durango

Compost company, nonprofits help divert items away from landfill
Table to Farm Compost co-owners Taylor Hanson, right, and Monique DiGiorgio, center, and Parker Jayne, operations manager, look through a compost pile made of produce from Albertsons at Twin Buttes. Table to Farm has partnered with Albertsons to bring the grocery store’s food waste to the farm at Twin Buttes. The compost will help Twin Buttes Farm grow about 15,000 pounds of produce annually.
Table to Farm Compost has about 340 residential customers and collects 205 tons of compostable waste a year. A new partnership with Albertsons will provide compost for Twin Buttes Farm and reduce the amount of organic waste the grocery store sends to the landfill.
