Organics recycling is the separation of all food scrap and organic material, inclusive of green waste, from your general waste. This enables the extraction of biogas, and the material can then be recovered to create renewable energy and fully recycled into compost, mulch, soil and liquid fertiliser.

What is Veolia’s offering?

Veolia offers collection, transfer and disposal services for this stream, and the details around which equipment would be best suited to your needs can be found here.


Veolia advises all clients to undergo a site waste assessment prior to their selection of equipment and schedules to receive best value for our services.

Why should you separate organics?

Today, organics generally make up anywhere from 50-70 per cent of a western society’s general waste.  By recycling this stream, clients can benefit from the following:

  • Cost savings
  • Landfill diversion of recyclable materials
  • Reduced carbon footprint.

Where do your organics go?

Veolia has invested significant funds in facilities such as Earthpower and Bulla to recycle this stream in mass amounts and turn the biogas into renewable energy.  We have even launched our own compost product, Vital by Veolia, to help farmers and gardeners become more sustainable in their operations.
