SOILCO’s expertise and resources assist clients in managing Green & Timber organic waste.

SOILCO can accept and process shredded and un-shredded green and timber waste from authorised commercial customers.


Our Organics Recycling Facilities at Kembla Grange and Nowra are EPA Licensed. Composts and mulches are processed in accordance with AS4454 and EPA Resource Recovery Orders (and exemptions).


SOILCO also provides onsite processing and removal of green and timber waste. This can be an economical solution when dealing with large volumes.

We can provide trained personnel, vehicles and plant necessary to safely perform these services, and set in place appropriate site establishment and shredding methodology to manage all scheduled work.

Financial Benefits For Your Business:

– Reducing waste and recycling management costs by avoiding landfill rates.

– Diverting organic waste removes weight, odour and potential liquids from the general waste stream which can reduce waste removal fees and other handling requirements.

– Having a comprehensive recycling program improves the business’s public image.


Environmental Benefits:

– Decrease the emission of greenhouse gases from the anaerobic (without air) decomposition of large amounts of organic material sent to landfill.

– Stop toxic leachates from the organic waste that are filtered into our water table.

– Organic waste is a valuable source of nutrients when composted. This gives life back to Australia’s depleted soils by “closing the loop” through the addition of soil improvers.
