This Tool is an interactive resource locator map created by RIT’s NYSP2I in part to identify and help connect organic waste and resource producers with potential waste and resource users. The creation of this tool was funded by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC).

All unprocessed data and estimated waste sources used in this Tool are described and cited in the References document. Generally, the unprocessed data used for this tool was obtained from publicly available sources or commercially available sources, standard estimating practices, and individual communications with resource providers. The resulting processed data is offered here for informational purposes and as a general representation of resource availability in the region.
All parties intending to rely on this information for business or financial commitments should confirm actual resource availability with the individual facilities listed. All business, safety, or legal and compliance requirements regarding any reliance on this information for the generation, use, exchange, or transfer of the organic resources remain the responsibility of the individual users. In addition, the listed generators of organic materials in this Tool do not represent the New York State list of entities that may, or may not, be a waste generator for the purpose of the NYS Food Donation and Food Scraps Recycling Law. Information on the applicability of the New York State Food Donation and Food Scraps Recycling law can be found on the NYS DEC website.
