Food & Beverage Waste Solutions
When you’re dealing with waste, cost is not your only challenge.
Our Farm Powered Solution
What We Do
End-to-End Waste Management
We collect food and beverage waste nationwide and recycle it into renewable energy at our farm-based anaerobic digesters. We provide a consultative approach for our partners' waste management programs. Our network of farms, food and beverage partners, strategic end site and hauler partners, and energy purchasers contributes to a circular economy benefitting farms, people, and the planet.
Your Food Waste Always Goes to the Most Sustainable End Use
We work with you to develop a holistic waste management solution that ensures all materials are recycled into renewable energy at a Farm Powered anaerobic digester near your facility. For rare cases when that is not feasible, we’ll find the most value-driven waste solution available.
Reliable, Customized Materials Management Logistics
We can service you through our own network of strategic partners and haulers or work with your current hauler. We are also fully equipped to handle any emergency situations you may encounter.
Zero Waste to Landfill
With Vanguard Renewables, you'll always know where your waste is going and how it benefits your company, local farms, and the environment. We will never send your materials to a landfill.
Depackaging Food and Beverage Waste
Pre‑processing Packaged Waste
Vanguard Renewables' advanced Organics Receiving Areas depackage and pre‑process expired goods, off‑spec batches, or unsafe to eat food and beverage products.
Recycling Food and Beverage Waste
The extracted food waste is recycled at a Farm Powered anaerobic digester, where it is combined with farm waste and converted into renewable energy. Some waste streams are able to skip pre-processing and enter the anaerobic digester directly.
