One of the biggest challenges with food and garden organics collection services can be convincing householders to sort their food waste from other waste and not use plastic bags in the process.
The issue with this strategy can be the difficulty of distributing compostable bags to those that want to use them and of course the on going costs. Smartweigh has developed an innovative new system to address these issues; a specialised vending machine that is capable of distributing rolls of 8 litre compostable eco bags to the householder at convenient locations such as local shopping centres and Council facilities. Smartweigh is the only company providing this service in Australia.
Ecovend liners are fully compostable and are compatible with the composting system used by the Council. The liners are easy to use and provide a simple way to solve the sometimes messy experience of sorting food waste. Ecovend compostable liners are not plastic they are made from corn starch which make them comply with Australian composing standards.
Ecovend compostable liners can be purchased in single rolls of 75 or boxes of multiple rolls. Compostable liners will last 12 months or more if stored in a dry cool conditions.
