As I have mentioned above, there are many restaurants and food and wine delicacies that can be found in Launceston. So, there also comes many locals and tourists that come to taste such food and wine.

As a result, restaurants must be careful and check their equipment and ensure that they maintain cleanliness and hygiene in their workplace. The grease trap, especially, can get dirty when neglected. But, some businesses simply do not have the means and time to clean their grease trap, which can lead to problems arising if left uncleaned.

So, what businesses can do is avail a grease trap cleaning service. And, Waster offers that as well!


Medical Service

As they always say, “Health is wealth”. But, along with the healthcare facilities that treat the sick and injured, also comes the waste generated.

Furthermore, hospitals, laboratories, and other healthcare facilities produce contaminated, biomedical waste, as well as harmful chemicals that can compromise the health and safety of humans, plants, animals, and the environment as a whole.

As a result, proper waste management is especially required in the healthcare sector due to the reasons stated above. Waster also offers medical bin services for Launceston health businesses that need proper waste management in their facilities.

Waster offers the bin service in two standard sizes:

  • 120-litre medical bin service
  • 240-litre medical bin service


Organic Waste Service

Basing from what I have stated above in the grease trap liquid service, food and drinks businesses will also be full of food waste.

Some businesses resort to putting food waste in the general waste bin, which Waster does not recommend. This is because general waste bins are charged based on the weight of the bin upon the pickup schedule. So, if your bin is heavy, you will be charged more.

The best thing to do here is to purchase an organic waste bin service to “recycle” your food waste. In other words, your food waste will be turned into compost or energy to prevent it from going into a landfill.

Waster offers one standard bin size service for organic waste: 120-litre organic waste bin service.
