Green waste takes up a considerable portion of the total waste produced in Australia every year.
Green waste is considered grass and flower cuttings, shrub and yard clipping, woodchips, bark, hedge trimmings, weeds, fallen leaves or branches.
Green waste is broken down through natural processes, with the help of bacteria. Bacteria feed on the materials and eventually compost the biological product. Most of the time, biodegradation turns green waste into useful fertilisers.
A study conducted by Sustainable Gardening Australia shows that yearly 400kg of green waste generated from a single household is disposed of without being recycled.
Unrecycled green waste is responsible for releasing methane gas and at this rate, 15.3kg methane gas is emitted and released to the atmosphere from each of the houses every year. Methane is a greenhouse gas, and it is responsible for global warming, making it harmful for both the environment and human beings alike.
Wanless Waste Management uses systematic processes to recycle organic waste and compost for reuse as fertilisers so that the green waste is not wasted at all.

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.
Waste management doesn’t have to be a burden to your business.
