Waste and Recycling

What Happens to my Garden Waste?

The bin with the green lid (garden waste) is emptied by a garden waste truck and sent to a local garden waste processing facility, located in Dandenong South. It is turned into compost and mulch, through a process called in-vessel composting.

Using compost instead of man-made fertilisers is a much healthier alternative. Not only is it environmentally friendly, but the end result is better gardens, for our community to enjoy.

Using recycled garden waste also helps to reduce landfill and in turn reduces carbon emissions.
