BioPak helps Perth café divert more than 33,000 kilograms of waste

Perth café Yelo has diverted 33,095 kilograms of waste from landfill and created 23 tonnes of compost since signing up to BioPak’s composting service in June. Yelo Owner Mike Pond says the service allows patrons to enjoy the convenience of disposable takeaway packaging, including coffee cups, while doing the right thing by the environment. “This is a fantastic initiative, which we believe will help divert potentially tonnes of waste away from landfills and turned into composting that can be used for commercial-level agriculture – at no cost to our customers,” Mike says. “In fact, the composting service will save us more than 20 per cent a year in waste bills.”
