Latest news from Cr Graham


Since Council began its Compost Revolution initiative in September 2017 we have seen a huge uptake from the community.

It is wonderful to see more than 1480 households signing up for a subsidised compost system. As part of the initiative residents can purchase a Bokashi, worm farm or compost bin at 60 per cent off.

With all these residents now composting, we have diverted about 125,300kg of food waste from landfill. Recent waste audits also show that the average amount of food waste from one Maroondah household has reduced by 2kg per week.

I’m so proud to live in a community that cares about the environment and is making positive changes to protect it.

We still have a long way to go, and Council is continually looking into new ways we can support our community to recycle and compost.
