What We’re All About

At WastAway®, we take something the world doesn’t want
and convert it into something the world can use.

As a company, WastAway has deep roots in manufacturing the technology and machinery that makes things happen. As a mission, WastAway is focused on helping convert an endless stream of municipal solid waste – household garbage – into something that the world can use for good. In the process, WastAway helps keep that waste out of landfills or incinerators, increases recycling, decreases greenhouse gases and reduces the environmental impact of that thing no want wants – household garbage.

In less than half an hour, the WastAway system converts municipal solid waste into Fluff®, an inert, odorless, and pathogen-free product that can be used in a variety of ways. Fluff can even be pelletized for use as a coal substitute for power plants which significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In about twenty minutes, the hamburger wrappers and milk cartons you threw away this morning can be converted into pellets that can be used to create the electricity you use when you plug in your computer or turn on your lights.

It sounds like magic, but it’s not. The WastAway system uses proprietary technology, sophisticated controls and proven machinery that extracts ferrous and non-ferrous metals, glass, ceramics, dirt and sand from household garbage, and then processes the remaining garbage to create Fluff. Pelletized Fluff, because it is stable and pathogen-free, can be easily shipped and stored for use as a coal substitute or even converted directly into bio-fuels.


For communities or businesses with recycling programs, the WastAway system increases the recycling participation rates and efficiency. For those without such programs, the WastAway system can implement an environmentally responsible recycling program. For anyone concerned with an endless flow of municipal solid waste – household garbage – the WastAway system offers a responsible, sustainable way to convert something no one wants into something everyone can use.

It’s proven technology, in use for more than a decade and backed up by a company that is more than half a century old. Want to learn more? Click here to schedule a call from a WastAway representative who can tell you how this can work for you.
