Graph of waste streams over four months

It’s been four months since The Yarra Waste Revolution started, and we have the latest collection data ready to share with you. 

When the trial started in June, residents in parts of Abbotsford were asked to separate their food and green waste from their landfill waste, and separate their glass from their other recycling. We supplied residents with two new bins, a plastic crate for glass and a food and green waste bin.

So far, you’ve recycled: 

  • 66.64 tonnes of food and organic waste
  • 43.31 tonnes of recycling
  • 29.95 tonnes of glass.

You can see our progress over the past four months in the graph above.

  • The green line is the food and green waste collected for composting
  • The purple line is the glass collected for recycling 
  • The yellow line is the recycling collected 
  • They red line is the waste collected for landfill.

As the trial continues, we will continue to share this information with you.
