& Organic Waste Management

Your Sunday Brunch

Every day, thousands of litres of water are used in  commercial kitchens across our city. Going out for a coffee or a meal are a common enjoyment shared by all. Have you ever stopped to consider where the water used to wash your cup and plate goes after it disappears down the drain?

ORGRO re-uses water just like this!

Your Green Waste

Every week gardeners, landscapers, builders and developers load up their trailers and trucks and head to the local dump to offload tons of green waste. What happens to those huge piles of clippings, branches and limbs?

ORGRO re-purposes green waste after it has been ground to a chunky mulch through the process of composting!

Our Story

Current owners Ken & Roz Skerman purchased the business from its’ founder in 2018, however ORGRO has been proudly manufacturing organic landscaping products for the Toowoomba region since 1997. Long before composting became “fashionable’, ORGRO was addressing the need to be water-wise and resourceful with materials mostly regarded as ‘waste’.

Orgro uses a controlled biological process in which organic materials are decomposed (broken down) by micro-organisms. In aerobic thermophilic composting, the micro-organisms require oxygen and moisture to transform the organic materials into a valuable product. A by-product of their activity is heat, which is necessary for killing unwanted organisms such as pathogens, weeds and seeds.

At the end of this process (approximately 12-14 weeks) this fully mature compost is ready to be blended with various other locally sourced materials like crusher dust and coal ash etc, then offered for sale as WHOLESALE PRODUCTS to local nurseries and landscapers.

NB: Orgro does not trade to retail customers – however the home gardener is strongly encouraged to ask for Orgro products at their favourite local nursery.
