Garden Organics Bin

Residential garden organics bin (green waste) has a light green lid and is collected fortnightly on the same day as your general rubbish bin.

Place your garden organics directly in the bin with no bags or pots. Any waste materials that aren’t green organics are considered contamination and are a significant problem.

Our garden organics is reprocessed at PineGro in Morwell into soil improvers and compost for the agricultural industry and as part of the circular economy.

To learn more about how our garden organics is reprocessed into quality compost and why it's important to eliminate contamination, watch this short video of our processor’s facility.
