Back to Earth - Food & Garden Waste


The Back to Earth Initiative is your chance to be a part of something that benefits everyone.

By using Council’s food and garden waste service, you can reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill, and instead create nutrient rich compost to help farms and gardens grow.

So today’s food and garden waste can grow tomorrow’s fruit and vegetables.

Food and garden waste bins are collected each fortnight, and taken to an organic processing plant where your waste is transformed into nutrient-rich compost, mulches, and potting mixes.

These products take your food and garden waste back to earth, enriching the soil and helping to grow healthy crops and pastures.

Find out more about the Food & Garden waste service and how you can apply via the link at the bottom of the page.
