We contacted Waste Initiatives to discuss options to reduce our waste that we were sending to landfill and find a sustainable long-term solution. The salesman worked with us to come up with a system that would separate the organics from packaging while generating an 8 month payback. The system has exceeded itself to date by paying for itself more than 5 times over. The overall sales experience from start to finish was very pleasing.

Challenge

Ninety nine percent of Masterfoods Australia products are manufactured at their site in Berkeley Vale, with many of their ingredients sourced from Australian suppliers and local Australian farmers. Masterfoods are passionate about finding more sustainable long-term solutions and they have taken steps to reduce their footprint by recycling water, reducing their waste to landfill, using recycled packaging materials and in the co-generation of their own electricity.

In 2016 Masterfoods approached Waste Initiatives looking for a solution to reduce the volume of waste at their site as they had an excess of packaged food product which was going to landfill.

Solution

The Waste Initiatives sales team went to site and inspected their operations to get a clearer picture of the type of system that would be suitable for their requirements. A custom designed product destruction unit was recommended as it was able to separate the organics (sauces, raw ingredients, finished products) from a range of packaging materials (from sachets through to 20L ingredient buckets).

The System was installed in early 2017 and has enabled Masterfoods to divert the organics from landfill and generated a 4 month financial payback. The system is saving the company approximately $800 per day and they have also said that it has paid for itself more than 5 times over.

Challenge

Jalco operate the largest independent Household Liquids and Powders manufacturing facility in Australia. Based at Smithfield, their purpose built production facility utilises some of the latest blending, granulating and packaging technologies in the manufacture of market leading household cleaning and laundry products.

Jalco had the expensive problem of bulk bags and plastic film going into general waste, they needed to reduce their waste costs and to increase their recycling measures.

Solution

Waste Initiatives worked with them to supply the equipment that would best suit their needs and to secure $50,000 of EPA funding for their project.

WastePac 100 and 300LH balers would bale up the recyclables for free collection and the SC3000 Blade Compactor and bins were installed to save them time and space with the cardboard recycling.

Our equipment saves time, is more tidy and cost effective than traditional waste management options.

Challenge

Slade Health has been providing exceptional services to the hospital, pharmacy and aged care sectors for over 50 years. From three licensed facilities, they compound many thousands of infusions per annum for over 200 hospitals located across all Australian states.

Slade Health was experiencing a steady increase in volumes of cardboard and general waste through the growth of their business, which lead to more bins on site taking up excessive real estate and losing car parking as a result.

Waste Initiatives was engaged to provide a more cost-efficient and space saving alternative to their bulky and expensive waste management system.

Solution

After several meetings and site assessments, Waste Initiatives supplied and commissioned two Compactors for the site and delivered significant savings in both space and waste overhead for Slade.

Waste Initiatives were also able to successfully secure an EPA Bin Trim Rebate for the business, fast-tracking the Return-On-Investment for the compactors.

The compactors have proven themselves in achieving high payloads on minimal footprint across cardboard and general waste streams and this particular installation will pay for itself many times over whilst keeping the site tidy and safe.
