BOKASHI BIN ~ BOKASHI PERTH ~ SCHOOL BOKASHI AUSTRALIA ~ COMMERCIAL BOKASHI KIT

Bokashi! the future of LARGE VOLUME  organic waste!

The next big thing! Will be! Over 90% of waste in restaurant and caterers’ bins, is potentially recyclable, reusable and compostable using a Bokashi Works  Commercial Organic Waste Kit

For Carbon’s sake let’s do something positive about it and get a tick in the process!

Turn food waste into organic fertiliser!

Put beneficial micro-organisms to work!

Bokashi is ideal for operations which generate large amounts of kitchen waste including but not limited to:

  • hospitality industry (cafes, cafeterias, restaurants commercial caterers, hotels, lodges, B&B’s
  • mining operations and camps
  • schools, colleges, universities, TAFES
  • apartment dwellers
  • eco-lodges
  • offices
  • farming, agriculture, horticulture

Why Bokashi?

Easy! given that it’s possible to discard all your organic waste, meat, fish and dairy without creating unpleasant smells and vermin usually associated with conventional composting

Bokashi is a cost-effective and efficient way of getting rid of your kitchen/catering scraps. Developed in Japan using EM effective micro-organisms such as yeasts, it is more akin to pickling than the rotting you get with normal composting methods.

Bokashi is totally safe– it’s not genetically modified and contains no nasty chemicals

The Bokashi Bin range of commercial organic waste kits was created in Australia  for converting organic food waste into high-grade garden nutrient or soil conditioner using EM1 otherwise known as effective microbes.

Bokashi Bin  Kits range from 80 litre to 240 litres, with the mid-size 140 litre, 4 wheel version being a popular choice for businesses, schools and restaurants where over 20 litres of food waste a day or more is likely to occur

Bokashi Bin operate inside or adjoining the kitchen, food hall or pantry and  food waste is added to the bin normally on a once per day basis.The more dehydrated the waste the better as the beneficial microbes do not operate efficiently in water. Spray with  Bokashi Works Active Liquid  and re-seal the lid

Continue the process until the bin is full, normally about 2-3 (maybe less) weeks for an average commercial kitchen. Once the bin is full  tip the contents into a hole 30-40cms deep in the garden area and mix with the surrounding soil

During the composting (fermentation) process a Bokashi juice extract will be generated. Drain this every 2 to 3 days. Dilute it as a fertilizer, pour it neat down drains or the kitchen sink outlet to keep drains clean. Use the juice extract within a few days as it degenerates rapidly

Trial~ Demonstration Bokashi Bin System

Given that the Bokashi method of treating organic waste is still relatively in its infancy and new to many particularly on a commercial scale, we will happily install a suitably sized Bokashi commercial system in your organisational kitchen or where directed and arrange a trial for approximately 1-2 months.

An organic waste audit would be arranged to ensure the right system was installed and to assist ongoing monitoring

The trial would  be accompanied by a demonstration and discussion to ensure that relevant staff were fully conversant with the methodology

An agreed rental fee would be arrived at for the period in question and credited against the purchase of a Bokashi Works Commercial  system. Please contact our base on 0417 096 202 or alternatively contact us in the first instance via eMail
