The equipment company Wastequip has partnered with BiobiN North America to provide a solution for food waste recycling as part of its recently launched Organics2Go program.
Wastequip, headquartered in Charlotte, developed Organics2Go to provide what it says is a cost-effective, environmentally responsible method of commercial food waste collection and recycling.
Wastequip says that BiobiN will provide a sustainable method of organic waste collection by allowing waste decomposition and volume reduction. BiobiN uses a patented biofiltration system to keep organic waste aerobic by circulating filtered air throughout the container via a series of pipes. The air is pulled through its biofiltration system and back into the container. This prevents the growth of pathogens, discourages odor and reduces vector attraction while allowing waste decomposition to occur between hauler collections. Since BiobiN reduces waste volume and collection frequency, it lowers hauling costs and improves recycling rates.
“Wastequip is committed to developing its Organics2Go program to provide customers with a better solution for organic waste management,” says Anne Brantley, Wastequip’s product manager. “The BiobiN system, which works in conjunction with our specially designed organics containers, is an innovative product that helps reduce costs for both haulers and end users.”
“BiobiN partnered with Wastequip because they are a leader in the waste industry with dedicated engineering and product development capabilities,” says Richard Chambers, president of BiobiN North America. “Wastequip also has the ability to manufacture high-quality containers at multiple facilities across the United States, allowing BiobiN to serve its customers more effectively.”
