Composting packaging, along with food waste, diverts organic materials away from landfill, creating a circular wastestream and truthfully represents a clean green New Zealand. 


Total Waste Solutions and Innocent Packaging have launched The Full Package, the first city-wide compost collection of its kind in Canterbury. With Full Package collection bins placed out the front of cafe and restaurant sites, providing anyone who has compostable packaging or food waste the ability to dispose of it properly and trust it is being composted. 


Public facing compostable packaging bins are then emptied into Total Waste Solutions bins out the back for collection. This bin is picked up on a regular basis from Total Waste Solutions and delivered to Canterbury Landscapes who is currently diverting over 100 tonnes of organic waste from landfill a day. You can read more about this process on our blog here.
