Loop Resource Program
What is LOOP and why has Riverbend partnered with them?
Loop Resource enables Riverbend Co-op to divert 100% of our unsaleable food away from landfills and towards those in our communities who can use it best — farmers!
For farmers, LOOP means receiving food that can be used as feed for their animals, as bio-energy, or as compost.
Riverbend Co-op diverted 20,341 kg of waste from our landfills through the Loop Resource Program from January to April 2021.
These results mean that Riverbend Co-op is projected to divert over 37,800 kg of waste and save approximately $1,700 per year in tipping charges.
