Organic waste, or green waste, is organic material such as food, garden and lawn clippings. It can also include animal and plant based material and degradable carbon such as paper, cardboard and timber. Burying organic waste in landfill is a big problem and it’s not just because of the resources we lose.

Currently none of the councils in the Riverina Waste Group have a kerbside collection service for green waste or food and organic wastes. Some councils will accept domestic greenwaste (tree loppings and garden waste) free of charge. Contact your local council for more information. Click here
