Yarra Waste Revolution in Abbotsford

The Yarra Waste Revolution has come to Abbotsford. These pages answer the questions you might have about what’s changing and why.

We’re going to be using what we’ve got (our waste), to create what we need (the possibilities are endless!). It’s called the circular economy.

If you have trouble understanding how to sort your waste, or need instructions in a different language, please contact us at 9205 5555 or email us at revolution@yarracity.vic.gov.au.

We have a map below showing the trial area.
