Sept. 7 — A pilot food waste recycling program is in the works for a Walmart being constructed in Palm Springs, Fla.

The shopping center could be the first Walmart in Palm Beach County where fruit, vegetables and baked goods will be recycled, according to the Palm Beach (Fla.) Post.

The waste will be put in dumpsters and collected at least once a week by Quest Recycling, the recycling contractor for Walmart.

Quest will haul the food to Bartow, Fla., where Organic Matters Inc. will convert it to animal food.

During the two-year pilot project, Quest will gather organic materials from eight Walmart stores and one Sam´s Club store, the paper reported.
