east-waste-logo-cmykJeffries, the compost, soil and mulch experts, are delighted to be processing green organics from the East Waste member council suburbs for the next 10 years. Having been the preferred organics processor for the Eastern Waste Management Authority (East Waste) for the last five years, Jeffries and East Waste have signed on to continue this strong partnership into the future.

Martin Jeffries, Managing Director of Jeffries said ‘We are very happy to continue working with East Waste and be able to offer cost reductions to member council residents through improved efficiencies and technological improvements’.

Jeffries is a 4th generation, South Australian company seen as a pioneer in recycling and reuse, with a commitment to sustainability, caring for the environment and diverting the maximum amount of organics from landfill. East Waste was founded by a number of metropolitan councils to manage their waste collection and is similarly committed to recycling and the environment, whilst also ensuring that services are delivered at the lowest possible cost to the residents they serve.

East waste member council residents can confidently place their green organics into their green bin and know that it will be processed into quality compost, soil and mulch that can in turn be used in their gardens. Jeffries also supply quality compost, soil and mulch products to the iconic Royal Adelaide Hospital project, resellers across metropolitan Adelaide and many leading South Australian vineyards and vegetable growers.
