Everything About Fruit And Vegetable Waste Management

In the long run, those rotting fruits and vegetables in your kitchen will harm the environment if not disposed of properly.

Additionally, this also holds true for industrial and commercial establishments; these mentioned all generate a significant amount of organic waste every year. In The Guardian article released in 2016, it is stated that 7.5m tonnes of food are wasted in Australia each day. With the way things are now, this has surely increased in the present time.

They were just dumped into a landfill until just a few years ago because of no solution being offered to dispose of organic waste. This, in turn, created a major problem for the environment.


The Problems Caused By Organic Waste Mismanagement

Let us see the science involved in here, first, to better understand its harmful effects.

Of course, one thing businesses can think about this is that mismanagement of fruit and vegetable waste can increase your costs, especially if you are a business focused on selling food like a cafe, a market, or the likes. But also, you have to think about your impact on the environment.

Let us say that a significant amount of food waste, composed mainly of fruits and vegetables, were thrown into a landfill. There, they rot and release significant amounts of methane – a potent greenhouse gas said to have 21 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide. In other words, fruit and vegetable organic waste thrown into a landfill always equates to a heavy carbon footprint.

As such, we know the devastating effects global warming has in this world.

Furthermore, that does not even include other factors in harming the environment! If you have read our blog on debating whether or not veganism can help the environment, you might have read the potentially harmful effects of it.

Some still grow crops and treat crops using pesticides and insecticides. It also includes exhausting our natural resources and threatens other ecosystems.

But, before we all go astray with the topic, it is important to note that almost all of the processes leading to fruit and vegetable waste have negative effects on the environment. And, of course, we want a much more sustainable way of dealing with fruit and vegetable waste so we can at least reduce the harmful effects.

As a result, proper fruit and vegetable waste management is the best solution for this.


Effective Fruit And Vegetable Waste Management For Businesses

I myself am a staunch believer in all waste having value even if perceived as a nuisance to the environment. The same holds true for fruits and vegetable waste; with proper waste management, fruit and vegetable waste can get their hands on useful second life.

The possibilities will multiply with the help of waste management providers. For example, we here at Waster also offer services for fruit and vegetable waste, classified as organic rubbish.

And, we cannot stress enough that fruit and vegetable waste are of high value! They can be turned into two main things:


Biogas – You may have heard of biogas, I presume? Biogas is an alternative to fossil fuels; additionally, it is also renewable energy. This is produced using organic waste (fruits and vegetables included).

Compost – Aside from producing biogas, fruit and vegetable waste can provide good nutrients to one’s garden! You can do this by composting; the end result of the product through recycling organic materials produces a soil conditioner which provides rich nutrients.


Here are just some of the benefits you (which applies especially for businesses) can enjoy when you purchase our organic waste (or, as we call it, green waste removal) service.


Reducing your costs

You can significantly cut your costs with Waster’s fruit and vegetable waste management services.

Instead of putting them in your general waste bin, you can instead avail an organic waste bin service to put your fruit and vegetable waste and let the waste management company handle it for you.

That is because the heavier a bin gets, the more it will cost you. So, allocating the waste in the organic waste bin can ensure your general waste bin would not get full.

You can contact us for a calculation of costs.


Safety improvements

Your business can avoid accidents and injuries with this.

By purchasing an organic waste bin service, as stated above, you reduce the weight of your general waste bin. In turn, your staff and handlers can easily carry the bin and not worry about getting injured.

This, in a way, also helps you save costs; you will abstain medical costs caused by waste management related injuries.


Improving your brand

Diverting waste from landfill is a hard but rewarding job. And, with your awareness, it will improve your brand.

Many people purchase a product or service with sustainability in their minds. And, as such, they are more inclined to purchase your services because you share the same sentiments with them.

Aside from that, you will also feel good yourself! Helping the environment may seem like hard work, but the end result is something you will be happy about in the fight for sustainability.


Fruit And Vegetable Waste Management: Conclusion

It is very important for a business to have effective waste management for their organic waste such as fruits and vegetables. This is to help ease your general waste bin load while also reducing costs. Additionally, it is to also help your business become a more recognisable brand due to its practices.

Conversely, mismanagement will harm the environment in all sorts of ways, as stated above. You might have thought, prior to reading this blog, that organic waste poses no harm or whatsoever. But, that is simply not true; any type of waste can become harmful if not carefully managed.
