OUR WHEELIE BINS :
Recently, Wellington City Council decided to stop accepting polylactide packaging (PLA), and compostable corn-starch bags, as input at their composting facility. Over the years compostable corn starch bags have been accepted and processed successfully in their commercial compost facility, Capital Compost. However the Council wants to achieve BioGro certification, to allow them to sell certified organic compost. Although this is not ideal for many of our customers waste recycling set up stations, we are not deterred, and see this as only a temporary problem in Wellington City.

We have a ZERO TOLERANCE of contamination. Contamination such as plastics, oils, cleaning products, containers and foils significantly compromises the quality of our compost product. If we receive contaminated material it will be diverted to landfill –and the cost of landfilling will be charged

CHANGES TO WELLINGTON COMPOSTING FACILITY
We have decided due to the logistics of collecting food waste from many of our customers.  We will continue collecting in the compostable corn starch bags, however we DO NOT send these bags to the compost facility.These bags are separated and sent to landfill.Choosing to be BioGro certified, does have its repercussions, that Wellington City Council has chosen to accept.
Please remember: your certified compostable packaging is still a more sustainable option than traditional plastic packaging.
