What goes in the green bin?

All your compostable cups, lids and packaging and any type of food scrap (e.g. leftover, spoiled or out-of-date food) can go into your BioPak Compost Service green bin. This includes: fruit and vegetable peels/scraps, meat and seafood scraps/bones, egg shells, dairy products (cheese, yoghurt etc.), bread, pasta, rice, cereal, coffee grounds/chaff, tea bags, out-of-date food (processed or fresh), confectionery, processed food and, of course, BioPak's certified compostable packaging. Only use compostable bin liners if you must (bags are not required for the service).

How does composting save you money?

Organics are often the heaviest component in a general waste bin as they can contain a lot of liquid. By removing the organics from your general waste bin and separating individual waste streams to be processed efficiently, you have the potential to reduce your overall waste expenses. Remember, food scraps may only look like a small amount, but they account for a considerable amount of the total weight. By removing them, you could make a significant saving to your general waste collection bill.

What is commercial composting?

A commercial compost facility optimises the process of rapid biodegradation of organic material to high quality, toxic-free compost by controlling conditions like shredding material to the same size or controlling the temperature and oxygen levels. All our compostable packaging has been certified to biodegrade within 120 days in a commercial compost environment – resulting in nutrient-rich soil.

When Recycling Makes Cents

While the percentage of waste going to landfill has decreased, waste tonnage overall is growing with the economy and population. Recycling doesn’t change the amount of waste created. Instead, it minimises resources lost by diverting material from landfill and transforming it into a new material. Sounds good in theory, but two basic questions about recycling persist: is it really good for the environment and does it make economic sense?
