Introducing Mill, a food recycling system.
WUSA9 brought ECO9 out to Northeast D.C. to meet with a family who found a new way to reduce food waste and it’s not composting.
So, what is it? It’s called Mill. It is a food recycling system that is an effortless way to recycle your food scraps. From leftovers to lunch box scraps, your food waste no longer has to end up in the landfill.
Theresa and Chuck Westover spoke to WUSA9 about how Mill has been an easy addition to their increasingly eco-friendly household.
“It’s super easy! All you do is hit the pedal and put your food in and close it and then you can either start it using the app or you can start a cycle just by double pressing on this button,” said Theresa.
Each night, Mill turns old food scraps into a useful new product. The device heats up the food scraps, dehydrates them, and grinds them up. The finished product resembles dirt. You can keep the scraps for your garden or send them back to Mill for free to be made into chicken feed. The bin takes about four weeks’ worth of food scraps to fill up.
I know what you’re thinking; that has to smell. But it really doesn’t.
Mill runs through a monthly subscription that costs about the same as curbside composting does. Plus, it’s the perfect option for people who live in the city and might not have a need for the grounds. When the bin is full Mill will provide you with a bag and box to ship your grounds back in.
