Industry overview

The waste generated by the agricultural and food manufacturing industries in Australia represents a significant opportunity to divert organic waste from landfill while beneficially repurposing organic by-products. Our genuine closed loop solution for recovering organic by-products means zero waste to landfill and all materials recovered are be used as resource.

The liquid and solid organic waste from the food processing industry can be recycled into a variety of resources, including biosolids, compost and soil conditioners. Organic waste can also be turned into power. Chicken fat and grease can be processed into biodiesel to power farm vehicles, while drum waste can be processed and recycled into new drums and materials. Wastewater from the food manufacturing industry can be recycled and repurposed for other uses in the same plant.

Food organics recovery can be challenging due to the low value of recovered materials, onsite handling, storage and collection difficulties. Our extensive network of resource recovery assets and specialised fleet of collection vehicles ensure that we can provide you with the organics recovery service most suited to your industry.


When sorted and separated properly, the organic waste from the food and beverage manufacturing and agricultural industries can be turned into a beneficial soil conditioner that works wonders for the land, making zero organic waste to landfill possible.
