What happens when your organic waste is not collected? Perhaps due to a labour strike, protests blocking the road or even COVID-19? The rotting organic waste rots and smells and can become a disease vector and threaten the health of your employees. Taking control of your organic waste eliminates these risks.
Most landfills in South Africa have closed or are nearing closure. Municipalities are thus pushing to reduce waste going to landfill by encouraging recycling of both in-organic and organic waste. Johannesburg and Cape Town have set clear objectives of reducing organic waste to landfill by 50% by 2022. We can thus see stringent regulations with financial penalties coming in to reduce waste volumes going to landfill.
Waste cost inflation is anything from 15% to upwards of 30% per annum depending on your waste provider and where you are. Managing your organic waste yourself gives you direct control of your costs, gives you visibility of your waste volumes allowing you to reduce (and save money), while reducing collection frequencies (due to no on-site rotting).
