Geneva business will take food scraps, turning them into fertilizer (FingerLakes1.com)

A local business that gives new meaning to the old saying: taking out the trash. 

Closed Loop Systems is a Geneva Made business that diverts waste from landfills and incinerators towards renewable waste systems that will extract maximum value out of incoming resources.

Most municipal waste management systems simply “take out the trash”, depositing household garbage at the landfill. Closed Loop seeks to maximize resource recovery, creating a sustainable system that is also cost efficient.

Closed Loop Systems announced in January 2021 that two 100-foot-long trenches and related facilities at 41 Doran Avenue in Geneva were ready to begin processing tons of organic waste.
