Organic Waste Collection and Disposal

URM’s organic waste recycling services allow you to conveniently dispose of food scraps and leftovers in a dedicated bin.

Organics recycling bins are particularly useful in busy areas such as shared office lunchrooms, commercial kitchens, food courts plus music or sporting events.

A separate organics bin means your general rubbish bins don’t fill up as fast and can be emptied less often.
Other benefits of URM’s organic waste removal include:

  • Lower carbon footprint
  • Clean, odour-free organics bins
  • Lower landfill costs
  • Flexibility (one-off removal or regularly scheduled collection)

What goes into the Organic Waste Bin?

Organics bins placed next to commingled recycling, paper/cardboard and general garbage bins make waste disposal easy for everyone.

Food Facts

According to Oz Harvest, Australians throw out up to $10 billion of food each year.

Four million tonnes of it heads to landfill. During decomposition food produces a harmful greenhouse gas called methane. But this could be avoided by separating organics from other rubbish.

URM is committed to helping Australians divert food waste from landfill. By disposing of it responsibly, we treat our planet with care so it can be enjoyed by future generations.

Keep your home or office clean and organized while helping the environment!
