We now offer an organics recycling service in NSW! We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with EarthPower, an industry leader in organics recycling. Using organic waste and compostable packaging, Earthpower are able to create high quality fertilizer ready for Australian farms along with electricity!
It isn’t a secret, although it’s not talked about as much as it should be - Australia has a food waste problem. And it’s no wonder either. In shopping centres, stadiums, pubs and clubs, whenever you’re throwing out rubbish it’s either ‘general waste’ or ‘recycle’.
And according to a recent Food Waste Baseline Report, 3.2 million tonnes of food waste is sent to landfill each and every year. All the time and energy used to produce these organics are lost to landfill. Some of the methane gasses that are produced are captured, but far too much of it escapes into our atmosphere.
We believe organic recycling needs to be offered in more cafes, takeaways, events and function spaces to help prevent our food waste from being forever lost to landfill.
After months of talks, Greenmark is thrilled to announce our partnership with EarthPower, a state of the art organics recycling facility that harnesses organic waste to create high quality fertilizer and electricity!
With EarthPowers unique biological process, we can combine food waste and packaging, streamlining and simplifying the waste disposal process for customers, making it easier for them to do the right thing.
And it's also our hope that using compostable materials for food packaging will prevent contamination of Australian recycle, leading to a cleaner and more reliable recycle stream.
Moving forward we’ll be able to offer organics recycling to all customers in NSW, coverage permitting. This service will only continue to grow, so please watch this space!
Embrace the future and support the environment - make sure that your organic waste is being put to good use, and show your customers you’re willing to go above and beyond. The future is compostable - make sure you are too!
