Food Waste and Organics Recycling

Reduce your business’s carbon footprint by turning your waste into compost.


Diverting food scraps and other organic material like coffee grinds from manufacturing, restaurants, cafes, hotels, offices, retail precincts, schools, universities, aged care facilities and hospitals not only saves the environment but can also save your businesses money. When organic material is placed in landfill it produces methane gases, by diverting food waste to a recycling facility new products including; compost, mulch and soil are produced.

Some states even have disposal options for a renewable energy facility where organics assist in the production of biogas to go back into the industry. Organic matter in bins is of a higher weight density than other materials, often forming the highest cost component in your general waste collections, so it makes sense to recycle. Wanless is committed to helping our customers to improve their environmental performance and to “Create a better future”.

We’re more than waste management

A staggering 9 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the world’s oceans each year, and land-based waste is the greatest polluter. This ocean debris affects about 700 marine species, some of which are now endangered.

To help turn the tide on plastic pollution, Wanless eco(logical) is investing in Australia’s oceans.
