Composting is a fantastic way to reduce environmental impact, minimize food waste, and create nutrient-rich soil amendments. But what should you consider when buying a commercial composter?

Waste Volume: 

How much food waste do you generate?
This information should be readily available for businesses already in operation from your waste management company. If you don’t currently separate your food waste, do a typical 2-4 week trial and weigh all the generated food waste.
At some points in the year you may generate more waste than others, a seasonal business like a café on the seafront will produce much more waste in the summer months than in the winter months. Consider the maximum amount of waste you may need to compost and plan for a machine that can cope with that amount. Take a look at our website to see which machine would suit your volumes.

How much space do you have for the composter?
Our machines can be located inside or outside and typically take up the same amount of space as your current food waste bins.

Odour Control:

Open compost heaps and classic composting bins will still generate a smell!
Our composters are built with sealed tanks to minimize odors as much as possible, so consider the impact the machine could have on the space it’ll be situated.

Ease of Use:

How easy is it to operate the composter?
Our composters are very intuitive, but not all composters are built that way. Make sure you select a model that everyone will be able to use easily.

Noise Level:

Some composters are quieter than others!
Again it’s important to think about where you’ll be placing your machine.
