NSW Businesses: Reduce Food Waste and Costs with SoilFood™ and Bin Trim Rebates

Businesses across New South Wales (NSW) now have a fantastic opportunity to improve their waste management practices through the NSW Bin Trim Equipment Rebates Program.

With $6 million in funding available over the next three years, this initiative offers substantial financial support to businesses aiming to reduce waste, increase recycling efforts, and boost operational efficiency. 

Rebates of up to $50,000 are available, covering up to 50% of the cost of eligible small-scale, on-site recycling equipment or technology.

Understanding the NSW Bin Trim Equipment Rebates Program

The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has introduced the Bin Trim Equipment Rebates Program to assist businesses in their pursuit of sustainable waste management. This program encourages businesses, including registered charities, not-for-profits, public entities, and government organisations, to adopt innovative waste reduction and recycling solutions. The goals are clear:

Minimise waste generation.

Maximise recycling efforts.

Implement cost-effective waste management solutions.

How SoilFood™ Systems can help divert your food waste from landfill:

When it comes to managing organic waste, the SoilFood™ Commercial Food Waste System is a game-changer. Our advanced technology converts food waste into a nutrient-rich organic soil fertiliser, significantly reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills

Why choose a SoilFood™ System?

The SoilFood™ System technology requires no additives such as water, wood chips or microbes for processing the food waste and reduces food waste volume by up to 80%, turning it into a dry, nutrient-rich biomass that’s easy to manage.

Environmental Impact: By processing waste on-site, a SoilFood™ System eliminates the need for transportation, cutting down on carbon emissions and waste management costs.

Pathogen-Free Output: Our high-temperature dehydration process ensures the output is free from pathogens, making it safe for use as a high-quality organic fertiliser.

Wide Applicability: From small restaurants to large-scale food processing plants, SoilFood™ systems cater to various capacities, ranging from 30kg to 2,000kg per day.
