The Back to Earth Initiative is your chance to be a part of something that benefits everyone. By using your council’s green waste collection service correctly, you can help to create useful compost products and reduce the amount of organic waste dumped in landfill.
The Back to Earth Initiative was developed by the Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Group (MWRRG) and runs in partnership with 19 metropolitan councils in Melbourne’s north, west and south east, and four regional councils in northern Victoria, to support the successful operation of new organics processing facilities. The Back to Earth Initiative shows us how what we put into our green waste bins can become a useful product that nourishes gardens and farms.
This infographic was created for local councils to use on their social media platforms to show how green waste is turned into compost.
