Driving Compostable Organics Recovery

Organix Solutions is committed to increasing the recycling of compostable organics, aiming to increase the global recycling rate of organics significantly, focusing on raising individual awareness, sharing knowledge and expertise, facilitating collection infrastructure and supporting recycling technology development.

Recycling of organics is important to us and our stakeholders. We set ourselves clear targets to continue increasing recycling worldwide. To support this, a number of initiatives are taking place in nearly every city in which we do business. Since 2007 we have seen a significant growth of recycling organics where collection and recycling is generally just beginning, while markets where both organics collection and recycling infrastructure is well established have more stable recycling rates.

We support activities to increase access to recycling of organics, and cooperate with local haulers, industry, and governments. We also assist material recovery facilities around the world with technical expertise to carry out trials and verify the feasibility of recycling organics at their sites.

Organix Solutions is investing meaningful dollars to promote individual awareness and work with local municipalities in its drive to increase recycling rates around the United States and the world.

Of course, this is accomplished in conjunction with our municipal and industry partners both locally and nationally. This means that the appropriate forms of organics collection, sorting, and recycling will be determined by local needs.

For example, we are members of the National Waste and Recycling Association, Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) and the U.S. Composting Council.
