Find out what Disney does with Food Scraps at Walt Disney World

It’s obvious that a company as large as Walt Disney World probably has quite a bit of food left over each day. Recently, we found out what happens to the food after the parks close!

Disney recently shared on their Animals, Science and Environment Facebook page that food scraps from Walt Disney World Resort are sent to an off-site commercial composting facility. They are recycled into a nutrient-rich soil product that can be used for gardening, farming, landscaping and more!

As the fall season comes to an end, we’ll be composting our leftover pumpkin scraps and you can, too! Every year, thousands of pumpkins end up in landfills and composting is just one way to sustainably dispose of pumpkins.

Pumpkins also can make great snacks for wildlife in your backyard. Pumpkin seeds can be added to bird feeders and leftover pumpkins can be cut up and placed in your yard for squirrels and other critters to find.

From their work to reduce waste created in their stores and parks to animal conservation and everything in between, The Disney Company is always striving to do their part to give back to nature. I love hearing stories about their “behind the scenes” efforts to make the world a better place!
