I don't expect that waste stream to be so rich for much longer, so the time to benefit from it is now.
It all boils down to your level of tolerance for the amounts of chemicals being brought to your land. In this day and age, it is tough to get away from synthesized contaminants. In a Certified Organic operation, restaurant waste would not be suitable. If your operation uses feed purchased off the shelf, restaurant food waste can save you money and give the critters some diversity in their diet.

I have two cheesehouses in a 10 mile radius, I'll definately be feeling them out for some of these materials. Just curious, what animals are you training with the bread, and what are you training them to do?

It keeps their animals warm all winter.
