Food Waste Disposal: If you have ever booked general waste bin services you will be aware that the heavier the bins – the higher the cost. This is because bins are collected and priced based on volume – but when the truck reaches the landfill – it is charged on weight in tonnes. See our blog on why the weight of bins matters.


It is for this reason that businesses producing lots of food waste – such as food production, green grocers, juicing companies etc tend to have really heavy and expensive waste removal. The pulp and organic waste is just very dense and heavy. This can also result in problems moving the bin around your site and loading it on to trucks. For this reason, commercial organic waste solutions such as those offered by Waster – are usually in small bins.

Food waste disposal – try to minimise waste as a first step


At Waster, we really believe in helping charity where possible. It can help reduce business costs also if you donate food to a local charity or to a national organisation such as SecondBite.


In this blog we want to cover one of the newer organic food waste disposal machines on the market in Australia – the American made “Waste-to-Waster” Bio-EZ machine.


The machine “rapidly decomposes all food waste into a nutrient rich liquid suitable for discharge into public waste disposal systems.”


The machines – which come in different sizes- and can be located in a commercial kitchen can dispose of all food waste safely and conveniently and means you do not need to organise pump outs like for some older systems or arrange organic waste or general waste bins collections. This can save a food business a very large cost – running into thousands of dollars.


The machines come in three sizes and can handle volume of up to 700kg a day. Note: grants may also be available for some businesses to implement these machines.


The technology is welcomed by Australian water authorities currently. You can see an overview of the process through this Youtube video:
