Total food and organic waste management
Food waste is one of the most under-recycled waste streams, commonly going into general rubbish instead of being recovered as a nutrient-rich resource. With our food waste collection and recycling service, you can:
- Increase sustainability rates
- Improve landfill diversion rates
- Reduce cost of general waste service by removing wet, heavy organic matter from general waste bins
- Contribute to high quality composts, premium soils, soil conditioners and potting mixes that can be used for land rehabilitation and soil improvement
Cleanaway will partner with you to reduce the amount of unsold, expired or contaminated food waste generated, dispose of it responsibly and turn it into new resources, creating a win-win situation. We can also provide a confidential and secure service that helps to manage your business reputation while recovering as much resource as possible.
Cleanaway offers comprehensive food waste management solutions for all business sizes. From waste audits to determine the biggest opportunities to improving your organic waste disposal processes, we can help improve your sustainability rates without compromising your business goals.

How food waste collection and recycling works
Our inhouse experts will work together with you to conduct waste audits, audits and workshops. This helps us spot waste management inefficiencies and identify possible new waste streams to improve sustainability rates and goals. Cleanaway then collects the food waste and transports it to our EPA-accredited facilities with our fleet of purpose-built vehicles. The organic material collected is stored onsite in bulk storage tanks to be assessed and readied for application.
This nutrient-rich material is then processed and given a second lease on life as energy, compost and liquid fertilisers, contributing to a genuine closed loop economy that delivers value at every stage in the supply chain.
