Since the launch of the four bin system in February this year, together we have saved 3,210 tonnes of organic waste from landfill which has been turned into nutrient-rich compost used on farms, parks and gardens across the state.
This has resulted in a reduction of 5,056 tonnes of CO₂ equivalent in greenhouse gas emissions, compared to last year. This would provide enough electricity to power 856 houses for one year.
Our new glass-only bins have saved 831,200 kilograms of glass from landfill which has been used in Victorian roads and construction.
We look forward to sharing more recycling updates with you.
