Organics Resource Recovery
Bio Gro are passionate about delivering quality products from Organics. This is at the heart of our business and all of our products are based on Organic inputs.
When we started this journey over 45 years ago we were trail blazers within the Forestry industry finding value from waste and bi-products. Now with change in Government policy, social pressures to be more sustainable in the way we live and promoting a healthier world through health soils and plant life, Bio Gro have come into their own.
Bio Gro now divert over 350,000 tonnes of Organics from Landfill every year and growing! These materials include Kerbside Green Organics and Food (FOGO), Commercial timbers, Whey from the dairy industry, Bi-Products of the intensive agricultural and commercial food industries, garden and landscaping waste, and our long-standing relationship with managing forestry bi-products from the timber milling industry, such as Pine Bark & Sawdust, amongst other things.
Our mantra of Recover, Refine, and Reapply represents our approach to long term sustainable outcomes for organics and organics recovery. Bio Gro’s GO and FOGO organic streams are Recovered from councils and their constituents, Refined into various compost, mulches, soil conditioners, and then Reapplied through Landscape Suppliers, Commercial Nurseries, Commercial Viticulturalists and Broadacre Farmers. Broadacre Farming is where we are quite excited about the growth of organics.
There has been an increase in understanding of the value that composted organics can play in improving soil health and crop yields. Through the diversity of manufactured products and end markets that we have access to, Bio Gro is well positioned to receive an increasing uptake of GO and FOGO within council areas and ensure that this volume is Recovered, Refined and Reapplied in a timely manner contributing to the overall net improvement to the environment, now and into the future.
We accept both mixed and unmixed loads of FOGO material. Unmixed bins/loads may be eligible for a reduced rate.
