Compost service

Change is in your hands

We all know that compostable packaging is better for the planet than its conventional plastic counterpart. But what if your council does not offer an organic waste collection service in your area? Enter the BioPak Compost Service, designed to divert compostable packaging and food scraps from landfill. More than just a cup recycling scheme, the BioPak Compost Service addresses 60% of your total waste, and collects compostable cups and lids, compostable packaging, food scraps and organic waste all in one bin — no separation required. With our compostable packaging solutions available in Australia and New Zealand, and our compost collection service being rolled out across both nations, it's never been easier to move your business towards zero waste. Change is in your hands.

Composting is growing

The importance of composting has grown significantly in the past decade. We are all, more than ever, concerned about humanity’s excessive consumption. Composting is a great alternative to landfill and we are seeing a rapid expansion of the commercial composting network across the world. The BioPak Compost Service is providing the final yard solution – connecting cafes and businesses who want to do the right thing with our logistics and composting partners. We are constantly adding areas to our network. Leave your details to stay up to date.

What can go in the green bin?

All your compostable cups, lids and packaging and any type of food scrap (e.g. leftover, spoiled or out-of-date food) can go into your BioPak Compost Service green bin. This includes: fruit and vegetable peels/scraps, meat and seafood scraps/bones, egg shells, dairy products (cheese, yoghurt etc.), bread, pasta, rice, cereal, coffee grounds/chaff, tea bags, out-of-date food (processed or fresh), confectionery, processed food and, of course, BioPak's certified compostable packaging. Only use compostable bin liners if you must (bags are not required for the service).

Composting is the future

Composting is a proven solution and part of the existing recycling infrastructure that will be further developed to process the seven million tonnes of organic waste currently being landfilled. Councils across Australia and New Zealand are investing in their residential compost collection. Recovering and composting waste disposed of in the general waste bins would result in the diversion of 60 percent of the general waste ending up landfill, including BioPak compostable packaging. It’s the co-mingled, one-bin, circular economy solution that Australia and New Zealand need right now.

What is commercial composting?

A commercial compost facility optimises the process of rapid biodegradation of organic material to high quality, toxic-free compost by controlling conditions like shredding material to the same size or controlling the temperature and oxygen levels. All our compostable packaging has been certified to biodegrade within 120 days in a commercial compost environment – resulting in nutrient-rich soil. BioPak has partnered with commercial compost facilities and waste collection services all around Australia and New Zealand, to provide the missing link to customers in the area.

Qantas and Jetstar will ditch paper boarding passes and switch to a purely digital system this year in a bid to cut down on paper waste.

The bold change was announced by Qantas Group this morning as it revealed plans to become the first airline in the world to reuse, recycle and compost at least 75 per cent of its waste by the end of 2021.

In the last 18 months, we have launched the BioPak Compost Service to over 1,800 postcodes in Australia and New Zealand, and have had our cups and lids certified to Australian standards (AS4736) – in addition to the European certification which we've held for a while – in an effort to provide confidence and comply to the most stringent, regional practices available.
