Preventing Waste for Businesses and Institutions

UC Berkeley’s Cal Dining staff uses the LeanPath food waste tracking system to identify waste prevention opportunities. StopWaste's Food Waste Prevention Program supports food service operators like Cal Dining in these efforts.

Waste prevention is good for your organization’s bottom line—it saves money and improves efficiency. But the benefits don’t end there. By rooting out waste, your organization shows it cares for the community and the environment. And your waste prevention efforts help make Alameda County a great place to live and work.

StopWaste offers waste prevention services to businesses, public agencies and other organizations in Alameda County. To get started, check out the links above for information about green purchasing, reducing waste from construction and landscaping activities, and other waste prevention topics.
