Denali Renews Food Waste Recycling Agreement With Walmart

1 min read

Denali Water Solutions LLC of Russellville announced that it has renewed an agreement with Walmart Inc. of Bentonville to recycle the retail giant’s food waste at most of its 4,700 U.S. stores.

In a news release, Denali said the partnership will allow it to divert millions of pounds of food that is no longer edible away from landfills each year. That waste will instead go toward beneficial uses such as creating compost, feeding animals and generating renewable energy.

Additionally, the two companies will continue to explore new strategies and tools to reduce food waste and maximize the positive impacts of recycling.

Denali said waste from grocery retailers like Walmart accounts for a significant portion of the 10 billion-plus pounds of organic materials it receycles annually. The company said the greenhouse gas mitigation impact of its food waste recycling operations is equivalent to taking about 100,000 cars off the road or providing electricity to more than 60,000 homes for one year.

“Walmart is a leader and innovator in making retail more sustainable,” Denali CEO Todd Mathes said in the release. “Denali is proud to provide services that bring Walmart closer to its goal of zero waste in its U.S. operations by 2025.”
