"Every Sunday night, I would look at the dumpster area. We have two restaurants and a handful of small businesses and residents all sharing this one dumpster. ...By Sunday, you couldn’t even get near the dumpster. There were trash bags overflowing everywhere, all on the ground. It was ridiculous.
I kept thinking look at all this waste and it was just from a couple of businesses and people.
So we started thinking about, how could we do better?" It was a big paradigm shift for everyone at the restaurant.
Our first step was saying that we’re going to have 4 trash cans and we’re going to sort our waste. People were like ‘oh god, I have to do this… and touch everything… and sort the paper…’ Now, no one thinks about it. It’s just how we are." -Seth Gross, owner of Bull City Burger & Brewery (BCBB) & Pompieri Pizza
