What types of businesses can benefit from REMONDIS’s commercial food organics recycling services?

Our commercial food organics recycling services cater to hospitality businesses, including restaurants, cafes, fast food outlets, food service providers, pubs and hotels, plus food manufacturers, hospitals, markets, aged care facilities, schools and universities.

Essentially, any business that produces, handles or receives food waste and wants to manage it well.

How can recycling food organics save on waste disposal fees?

By choosing our commercial food organics recycling service, your business will reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.

Landfill Levies are charged for general waste going to landfill but not for food organics.

By separating recyclable food waste from your general waste, you reduce your general waste volumes going to landfill.

You may also be able to reduce the frequency of your general waste collection, or the size of your general waste bins.

Call us to explore adding food organics will change your overall waste management costs and practices. You may find that our food waste management solutions may improve your business’s overall waste management efficiency – and attract eco-conscious customers, further benefiting your bottom line.

What can I recycle in my food organics bin?

Not quite everything. Food organics bins can be used to recycle a wide range of food waste including fruit and vegetable material, cooked or uncooked food, meat, poultry, eggs, eggshells, fish and other seafood, bread, rice, pasta, cereals, tea leaves, coffee grounds, and dairy products.

However, we do not accept any packaging or packaged food, other recyclables (such as paper & cardboard, glass, cans), coffee cups, paper towels, or anything plastic.

If you cannot eat it, it should not go into the organics bin.

How does REMONDIS commercial food organics service ensure proper food waste recycling?

We provide you with a separate, clearly labelled, food organics bin so that food waste is separated from general waste or other recycling bins in your premises. We call this ‘source separation’ and it’s an essential part of the recycling process because it’s very difficult to extract recyclables from combined waste after it has been collected.

Your food organics bin will be collected by a dedicated vehicle, and transported to a specialised Organics Resource Recovery Facility (ORRF) to be processed into compost, biofuel, or other valuable resources.

At our state-of-the-art ORRFs, the food waste is shredded and any contaminants are removed. It is then mixed with garden waste to achieve optimal moisture levels and loaded into purpose-built, sealed tunnels to reduce odour and maintain optimal composting conditions.

Within just two weeks, these piles break down into nutrient-rich compost and mulch, which can be used on parks, gardens, agriculture, and sporting grounds.

By choosing REMONDIS commercial food organics recycling services, you’re reducing the amount of food waste sent to landfill and contributing to a more sustainable future.
