Your local compost hero is now also your neighbourly sustainable waste partner!
Powered by TrashIt, Trash on Wheelz (TOW) enables communities to save their waste from ever-growing garbage mountains that we call landfills. TOW is a comprehensive waste collection service that engages the community while ensuring that your waste is responsibly and safely processed.
Read on to find out how YOU can get involved, it's so simple and so effective...
Collective action at the community level... that's where YOU come in.
TOW steers communities towards conscious consumerism. Here's some of the positive outcomes of sustainable living:
Reduce demands on finite natural resources- and associated environmental impacts of extracting and processing those resources.
Minimise greenhouse gas emissions- associated with waste collection, transportation and treatment (exposed waste, burning, landfill...)
Encourage social inclusion and economic development- through a circular economy, creating 10x more jobs than mixed disposal.
Knowledge is power- understanding amount and type of waste increases operational efficiency while reducing environmental costs.
Improve standard of living- visibly more pleasant environment and decrease in land, air and water pollution, germs and disease.
Reduce energy used in creating new materials- recycled aluminium cans use 95% less energy than virgin aluminium.

TOW is encouraging a circular economy tackling resource use, consumption and waste. Closing material loops by maintaining the value of products and resources in society for as long as possible.
TOW is effectively reducing waste sent to landfill, use of virgin materials and the associated pressures on society and nature.
