Improving the commercial performance of our clients through holistic environmental solutions.

Organic Recycling

We provide a range of organic recycling solutions to transform your business’s food waste into compost* that is both valuable and versatile.


Closed Loop’s organic recycling units are fully contained, commercial on-site composting units that can reduce food waste volume by up to 90 per cent in 24 hours.

Easy and odour-free composting

Our units decompose and homogenise food organic waste in an aerobic environment using controlled temperatures, agitation, airflow and organic starter material.

All you have to do is add food and organic waste throughout the day, including fruit, vegetables, grains, dairy, meat, fish, poultry, eggshells, crustacean shells and liquid.

The unit features a sophisticated ventilation and deodorisation system that promotes decomposition without any unpleasant smells.


Turn food waste into an asset you can use

Within 24 hours, the original material will be reduced by up to 90 per cent  – transformed into a concentrated compost you can use in many different ways, including:

  • On your garden or grounds.
  • Donating your compost to a local community initiative.
  • An employee collection program to engage and reward staff with a compost collection box to take home.

Organic recycling tailored to your needs

Before recommending a Closed Loop Organics unit, we perform a full audit of your business’s kitchen and waste streams, as well as suggesting a location for installation of the unit.

As your sustainability partner, Closed Loop will also implement a communication plan to help your staff and contractors understand and engage with the program.

Closed Loop Organics units are available in sizes to process between 20kg to 200kg of food waste a day.

* The use of the term ‘compost’ to describe the process and output of Closed Loop organic units is used in accordance with the Oxford Dictionary definition of compost as "decayed organic material used as a fertiliser for growing plants". The NSW EPA applies a more specific definition of compost - "a process of managed biological transformation: (a) to achieve pasteurisation; and (b) for a period of not less than a total of 6 weeks of composting and curing at an adequate moisture level (>40% by weight), and/or until an equivalent level of biological stability can be demonstrated." The Closed Loop organics units process food waste in 24 hours so do not meet the definition of compost in NSW.
