Connecting gardens, groups and growers to create a more resilient food future in Darebin

A deep dive into food waste

Did you know that food waste still makes up approximately 43% of Darebin’s kerbside household waste sent to landfill? Diverting food waste from landfill is the biggest opportunity for us to reduce waste to landfill and emissions from waste.

That is why Council is inspecting randomly selected food and green waste bins across Darebin in March to provide feedback and tips to households that aren’t currently utilising the food and green waste bin to recycle food waste.

Want to know more about it?

We are delivering some education sessions on how to make the most out of your food and green waste bins. If you are a community group based in Darebin that would like us to run a free 1-hour education session in March, please email
