Food Waste Recycling & Food Waste Removal
Food waste (also known as organic waste) can make up a hefty fraction of your daily garbage, in fact, 250,000 tonnes of unwanted food is thrown away each year across Victorian and more specifically Melbourne households.
Food waste thrown into the standard garbage bin ends up in landfills, taking up unnecessary space and decomposing to release greenhouse gasses such as methane. That’s why Go Easy Rubbish Removal believes in food waste recycling. Organic waste should be used for composting to limit its environmental impact, but when that isn’t possible (particularly for businesses with lots of waste), our team can take care of food waste recycling for you and collect your organic waste and dispose of it appropriately.

Ethical Organic Waste Recycling FAQs
Food waste is waste that is edible and for human consumption, but gets thrown away instead. For large quantities of food, waste that is left in the bins can decompose and become a breeding ground for flies, maggots and other insects. As such, a professional waste removalist can dispose of food waste in an environmentally friendly and clean manner, ensuring that the food is recycled properly.
More than 2.5 million tonnes of food gets wasted every year by Australians. Food waste in landfill can produce greenhouse gases, which can contribute to global warming and become harmful to the general public. Not only this, wasted food means that we are contributing to the waste of resources, as any food in landfill is simply discarded.
You can reduce/ prevent food waste by:
- Consistently checking that you are reusing the food in the fridge/ pantry.
- Storing food properly and reheating the leftovers.
- Purchasing ‘imperfect’ or ‘ugly’ food products that often get overlooked.
However, if the food must be thrown out, food waste can be recycled and turned into compost, so a professional waste removal company can help to recycle the food and reduce food waste.
You should not bring food waste to the tip, as any waste in landfill will simply be destroyed. We instead recommend taking the waste to an organics facility or recycling centre to turn the food waste into compost so that it can be repurposed into biodegradable compost, rather than hazardous methane and other greenhouse gases. This should therefore be left to rubbish removal professionals.
