Waster: here’s what you can and can’t put in your organic food waste bin

We want to remind you that it is never a good idea to put your organic food waste into the general waste bin. Not only will it increase your costs as you add the amount of waste that goes into it, but it will also prompt you to do harm more than good to the environment.

For this reason, Waster offers its organic food waste bin service for both small and medium businesses (SMEs). Assuming that you’ve acquired our service, we want to give you a comprehensive discussion that you have to remember.

For this type of bin, you can only dispose of organic food waste, as the name of the bin suggests. You cannot put any other products such as food waste contaminated with plastic, metal or glass content (or the other way around).

Here are some examples of what you can put in the organic food waste:

  • Bakery items
  • Grains and pasta
  • Dairy products
  • Eggshells
  • Coffee grounds and tea bags
  • Fruit and vegetable scraps
  • Flowers and herbs

On the other hand, some examples of what you cannot put include pure meat (i.e., meat without bones), manure of carnivores or omnivores such as cats, dogs, pigs etc. and paper mixed with other materials such as wax, plastic etc.

You will have a hard time if you do not sort your organic waste. In fact, mixing it with different, non-organic products will only result in you having a difficult time.

Facilities can and will reject the food waste accumulated if a significant amount of non-organic products infiltrate the stream. As mentioned above, there are wastes you can and cannot put in the organic waste bin, so be sure to take note of those. You can always communicate with your provider (best example: Waster) if you have questions or some things confuse you.

Let us give you a more in-depth discussion of our organic food waste bin service below.


More on Waster’s organic food waste bin service

The organic food waste that you place in the bin is diverted from landfill. They are eventually used for electricity generation or composted at specialised facilities (i.e., turned into compost). Organic food waste should be deposited in the bin with no plastic bags or other contaminants which can not be treated in the facility.

Waster’s organic food waste bin service is available in a 120-litre bin size. Please contact our customer service team for larger bin options. As mentioned above, by removing food items from your general waste bin, you can reduce the weight, hence the cost of waste management for your business and significantly boost your overall recycling performance.

You can see our 120-litre bin (0.12 cubic metres) below (silhouette shown of female figure 1.65m tall).

Remember: there are certain organic wastes you can and cannot put in your organic food waste bin. You have to make sure to consult with your waste management provider like Waster (businesses) or the local council (households).

Additionally, if you are a business in need of such a service, do not hesitate to contact Waster.
