Every perishable department is given a food waste container, throughout the day it is collected about every 2 hours, consolidated in compost dumpster and picked up by a food composting business.
Energy Efficiency
Description of Action: 
Through lifecycle replacement McCaffrey's of Princeton is continually upgrading its freezer cases, aisle lighting and individual fixtures to energy efficiency LED bulbs. We installed new higher efficiency display cases using LED lighting to reduce our energy usage by 28% in those cases over the course of 1 year and yield us a savings of approximately $420.00 annually.

Energy Other
Description of Action: 
McCaffrey's of Princeton has an energy management system for lighting. All store lights are set to discreet timers aligned with store hours and automatically shut off and turn on. The exposure of foods to light leads to rapid deterioration (also known as photodegradation), resulting in discoloration, off-flavors, and vitamin loss. By using an Energy Management System, McCaffrey's has been able to extent the shelf life in the meat department, reduce waste and save money.
