About Organic Waste Management

Organic Waste Management is a joint venture with Back 2 Earth which sells natural fertiliser with organic carbon. OWM has spent the last 11 years developing a method of liquid and solid organic waste recycling with particular focus on odour control. The director of the company first began working with earthworm breeding in 1991 and has developed the idea of utilising there ferocious appetites to industrial and municipal waste.

We are a ISO9001 quality endorsed company (lic. 23327) and we believe in the importance of critical scientific thinking when approaching our operation.

This provides a profit incentive to do the right thing with the added bonus of doing your part for the environment.
