Knowing that organic waste has the greatest environmental impacts on landfill, this waste stream is fast becoming more regulated. We have seen this with the proposed 50% landfill ban by 2022 and a complete ban by 2027. Adding to this regulation, businesses that produce large volumes of organic waste are required to manage it on-site to prevent unwanted environmental impacts and keep it separate from other waste streams, like solid recyclables.
So how is organic waste managed on-site?
For businesses that produce large volumes of organic waste, the most important and immediate solution should be a means to contain it in an enclosed vessel. When organic waste degrades, it produces heavy odours that will attract unwanted rodents and flies. Containment is a way to mitigate this.
Going a step further, BiobiN acts as an on-site organic waste containment vessel for many businesses, like shopping centres, corporate parks, and the hospitality sector. As the organic contents of the BiobiN are mixed with carbon (wood chippings) and induced with air, composters are happy to accept the volumes that come from the units.
This method for managing organic waste on-site allows businesses to keep organic waste separate from other waste streams and divert it from landfill, keeping businesses ahead of waste regulations.
