No-one is quite sure how floor waste or kitchen waste is dealt with in Australia, but it does happen. So, as well as looking at the different materials and solutions, you will need to be aware of the system used in your area and the level of quality.
Cookers, plates, bowls, food and waste, all need to be tracked down and dealt with before they end up as kitchen waste. All of these need to be removed and disposed of properly. If it is a small amount it can be put into a recycling bin, but if it is much more you may need to go out and find a way to get it out.
You may think that you don’t have much need for floor waste, but I’m afraid you’re wrong. All too often, we see things like food waste, chocolate wrappers, coffee cups and plastic containers lying around, but do we really know what is going into them? We don’t always realize how much trash is sitting in our drains, pits and potholes, so there is a lot of potential for the waste in our bins and trolleys.
Now, this doesn’t mean that you should keep throwing waste down the loo! It is quite possible to sell it to an appropriate agency, but you will need to be aware of the different options.
Compost is a fantastic option for your waste, but you need to find a company that does the right thing by the environment. To make things worse, there are plenty of companies who are good at what they do, but try and purchase from a company that has a very high percentage for recycled material. If they don’t, then it is best to go elsewhere.
If you are looking for a one off service, then just a flat rate for the waste might be enough, but if you want to track it and get it collected over a period of time, then you will need to look at the price point. There are plenty of good companies who do exactly what they say on the tin, but you’ll need to pay attention to price and reputation.
If you only need the floor waste for a short period of time, then it might be a little too much to pay for a good watery compost. If you have more than you require over a short period of time, you could also try and contact the businesses that have your waste for you to dispose of them on behalf of them.
Some people have a container at home that they call their waste bin, which they use to collect some of the waste from the rest of the house, so you might need to look for a company that does that too. There are some companies that offer a professional service in addition to the no-charge option, and they can even advise you on how to improve the environment around your home.
If you have a service provider that you are working with, then they will be able to provide you with a full package of everything you need. The price could be a little higher if you are starting a company, but if you have a good reputation and provide excellent service, then it might be a better option.
