About the Pilot Program


The Village of Belledune in partnership with Food Cycle Science will offer 50 FoodCycler™ units at a subsidized price to residents for use in their homes. By utilizing cutting-edge technology, a FoodCycler™ speeds up the natural decomposition process through aerobic digestion of waste. Each “cycle” of composting in the FoodCycler™ takes approximately 4 to 8 hours and uses only 0.8 to 1.3 kWh of electricity. The unit dries and grinds food waste into a dry, odorless nutrient-rich by-product that is significantly reduced in weight and volume from its unprocessed state. The product is free from bacteria, weed seeds, and food-borne pathogens that were eliminated during the process. Two different sized units will be available to use.
