Food and garden waste go together

You can recycle food scraps in your green waste bin - the same bin you use for grass clippings and garden prunings. Things like fruit and vegetables, meat, fish and bones, coffee grounds, eggs and dairy, bread, rice, pasta and paper towels can be recycled.

There is no additional cost to recycle food scraps in your green waste bin and no changes to when your bins will be collected. General waste bins will be collected weekly, and recycling and green waste bins will be collected fortnightly on alternate weeks.

Food scraps and garden prunings from your green waste bin will be taken to a commercial composting facility to be turned into compost for use on farms, vineyards and community gardens around Victoria.
