MOM’s Organic Market: 12% savings and increased landfill diversion

An organic grocer with stores across Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey Virginia and Washington DC, MOM'S has maintained a promise to its customers through the sustainable sourcing of produce for over three decades.

The Challenge

MOM's Organic Market's dedication to sustainability extends far beyond its shelves. With a mission to "protect and restore the environment," MOM's engages in renewable energy projects, environmental stewardship, and extensive community programs focused on waste reduction. Having to manage multiple haulers, spend time finding recycling partners and deal with various billing methodologies made it difficult for MOM’s to make significant progress on recycling or to be able to identify opportunities for efficiency. 

Hosting its own in-store recycling collection program for hard-to-recycle items, MOM's needed a strategic partner to manage its complex and growing recycling streams, all with the goal to divert as much as possible from the landfill. Additionally, with its broadening footprint across the Mid-Atlantic, the chain sought cost savings on its rising waste bill and streamlined service for its ever-evolving needs.

MOM’s needed:
  • Fully-managed waste + recycling services
  • Simplified Billing
  • Cardboard Recycling
  • E-waste Recycling
  • Specialized Waste Collection
  • Food Waste Reduction


Starting in February 2020, Roadrunner used its proprietary market intelligence technology, its vetted network of preferred haulers and vendors, and its dedicated team of waste and recycling experts to simplify MOM's waste operation by fully consolidating and managing waste and recycling operations across MOM’s entire 20 location portfolio. MOM’s could now deal directly with RoadRunner as single point of contact for all their waste and recycling needs, while also receiving billing customized to their preferences.

In just one year (2020), RoadRunner was able to help MOM’s achieve 12% cost savings and increase recycling rates through RoadRunner’s specialized RecycleMORE program, that sets in to place recycling programs that makes sense on a location by location basis, including our CleanStream recycling services for source separated recycling.
