What is commercial food waste recycling?
There are many public service and commercial businesses who need to cater for employees, visitors, patients and guests. Catering on this scale produces a huge amount of waste from food preparation and plate scrapping. This waste is piled into bins which can be unattractive and emit bad odours. The waste then has to be collected at a charge and then dumped at landfill sites which creates Co2 emissions during the decomposing process.
We can save you money and help the planet
Forget messy bins, disposal costs and Co2 emissions, a Ridan Composter will make all of those a thing of the past as all organic matter including cooked foods, meats and even grass cuttings can be recycled into clean, healthy, natural compost.
What is composting?
Composting is the decomposition of biodegradable organic matter, including cooked and raw food waste. Kitchen waste and plate scrapings can all be composted, as can garden waste such as grass clippings and dead leaves. The key thing to remember is that if it once lived, then it can be composted.
When the conditions in the Ridan composting machine are correct, microscopic organisms respire and breakdown the matter to produce nutrient rich compost that is perfect for your garden!
What can your commercial business compost?
- Fruit and Veg (including skins)
- Meat & Fish (raw and cooked)
- Plate scrapings, anything edible.
- Grass cuttings
- Shredded paper, card and tissue
- Oils and fats
Dead leaves, straw, paper, cardboard and tissue can be composted by layering them into the Maturation Box, between the compost as it is loaded, this works better than adding them to the Ridan. For more information go to: How the Ridan Composter works
How do I use a Ridan food waste composter?
Successful composting all depends on getting the right proportions of carbon and nitrogen rich materials. Too much carbon can cause the materials to be too dry and not break down. Too much nitrogen tends to make the waste go rotten and smelly.
You can compost all food waste (foods past their sell by date, cuttings, peelings, and plate scrapings) and all garden waste (grass clippings, weeds, cuttings, and horse manure). These green waste products are all nitrogen rich, so you need to balance this out with carbon rich products. Carbon rich products need to be hard, dry and absorbent materials. i.e. shredded paper, wood chips, sawdust, cardboard, dead leaves, and straw (brown waste)
