The State of Ohio launched the Ohio Food Scraps Recovery initiative in June 2007. In September 2007, the State invited grocers, haulers and composters to a stakeholders meeting to determine the interest, and identify the barriers, to implementing regional programs. Meanwhile, the infrastructure of composting facilities, and resulting costs associated with hauling, were identified as key barriers. The Ohio Grocers Foundation began a food composting pilot project in several parts of the state with a number of goals. The hauling companies expressed an interest in the initiative, recognizing that their customers are requesting this service. Meanwhile, the infrastructure for composting facilities has been developing through the interest of the composting industry.
