Food and garden waste trial

 Yarra Council is trialling a new food and green waste collection service in selected areas of Abbotsford.

Trial participants are:

  • helping the environment by reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.
  • helping to build a local network of food scraps and green waste champions by sharing your ideas and experiences.
  • helping the entire Yarra community to improve the waste collection service.

Where do you live? 

I’m not in the trial area – what can I do to make a difference?

You can help by finding out how you can compost at home, or by visiting our plan smartshop smartcook smartstore smart and recycle smart pages to learn how to reduce food waste. You can also visit Share Waste to find someone in Yarra who can accept and compost your food scraps, or add yourself as a host to compost for others.
