Where Wisconsin stacks up on U.S. food waste

waste prevention chart

Diverting food waste from landfills by composting food scraps or recycling as animal feed is another component of sustainability, but what’s allowed under the law varies from state to state. Wisconsin, for example, enacted a policy in 2015 that prohibits swine from being fed food waste in order to prevent disease among the animals.

The state also keeps a tight rein on eggs, which cannot be sold after the expiration date on the package, though they are still considered safe for consumption. Some states, like Oregon, don’t require a sell-by date on eggs, but do require food safety labeling.
