GreenWaste is supporting a more circular economy by recovering, repurposing and reusing existing materials, as well as recycling organic waste into alternative feedstocks and fuel sources.
The company diverts organic waste from landfill via composting, using the waste collected to produce nutrient-rich, organic-certified compost and mulch that replaces the use of chemical fertilisers and other synthetic, non-renewable resources used in some agricultural practices. By making and reselling organic compost and mulch, GreenWaste is not only supporting healthier plants and increased crop yields but is also helping to conserve natural resources normally used in the production of these materials.3
GreenWaste also uses organic waste to produce renewable energy. Through the process of anaerobic digestion, the company generates biogas, a renewable energy source that is used to create electricity. This electricity is first used to power GreenWaste’s Renewable Energy Digestion Facility, with excess supplied back to the grid.3
These activities complement the work the company is also doing at its materials recovery facilities to separate recyclable materials from the municipal solid waste and construction and demolition waste streams. These recovered materials are then sold as commodities or used in other ways.
