Back to Earth Initiative


The Back to Earth Initiative encourages the community to correctly use Council's green waste collection service so that green waste can be turned into compost - benefiting local parks, farms and gardens, rather than being dumped in landfill. 


The Back to Earth Initiative is run by the Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Group (MWRRG) in partnership with 27 councils across Victoria and industry with support from Sustainability Victoria and the regional waste and resource recovery groups. The Back to Earth Initiative shows us that what we put into our green bins can become a useful resource to nourish gardens and farms.
