Kerbside waste

Kerbside waste

Kerbside waste or source segregated organic food waste – in some countries known as forsu – contains the organic segregated waste from households. This fraction may contain leftovers from dinner, cooking, outdated supermarket products and other consumer related products. It’s possible that it contains contaminants in the form of pieces of metal, stones, big branches and other unwanted material.


Mavitec Green Energy’s Paddle Depacker is the perfect solution to handle your kerbside waste. The Paddle Depacker is a robust and tough design with easy maintenance options. These are critical when processing kerbside waste. Instead of several machines as a line this machine can do it all in one, with clean soups and clean packaging fraction! Besides the kerbside waste other materials like restaurant/hotel waste & supermarket waste can be handled in this machine. More info can be found below.


  • The kerbside waste is received in containers or in trucks, and tipped into a bin, or on the floor and transported with a front loader into a feed hopper
  • A screw conveyor transports the material into the Paddle Depacker
  • The Paddle Depacker separates the organics from the packaging, with its rotating shaft
  • Clean organic material is collected under the Paddle Depacker and can be pumped directly into a storage tank or tank lorry, ready to be used in a biogas installation
  • The removed packaging leaves the Paddle Depacker via a screw conveyor into the clients container
  • It is possible to use an additional dewatering press to reduce the weight even more
