Since the launch of the four bin system in February last year, together we have saved 7,868 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 23,213 tonnes of CO₂ equivalent in greenhouse gas emissions, compared to last year. This would provide enough electricity to power 2,679 houses for one year.
Our new glass-only bins have saved 1,776 tonnes of glass from landfill which has been used in Victorian roads and construction.
We would like to thank each and every resident for their commitment towards recycling, every little action has a huge impact.
