Food Waste Collection for Businesses

Food and Organic waste collection done better.

When organic matter (such as food waste, or green waste) ends up in landfill, it decomposes without oxygen and releases powerful greenhouse gasses. 

Little Buddies keeps food, paper and other organic waste out of landfill and gives it new life as nutrient-rich soil conditioner that can be used to improve soil health.


We make it super-easy for businesses including cafes, restaurants, offices and breweries to dispose of food waste, green waste, and other organic waste in a cleaner, earth-friendlier way.

Waste Carriers

If you are a waste carrier that wants to explore an alternative destination for your food waste and other organic waste, we have partnerships available.

What waste can Little Buddies process?

A core part of managing our composting processes is curating our inputs. We are able to process a wide range of waste streams; see below for a list of what we can pick up. If you are a larger waste producer or waste carrier, talk to us about dropping your organic waste with us.
