Anakie compost put to use

Monday, 7 October 2019

Grass clippings, tree branches, leaves and weeds from the Greater Geelong’s garden waste bins are sorted, pasteurised and matured into Australian Standard compost.

By applying organic compost as a fertiliser to agricultural land, the amount of carbon stored in the soil increases and contributes significantly to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

The facility is expected to process up to 35,000 tonnes of green organics a year, making it a key development in reducing the reliance on landfill, as it provides an all-weather, all year option for processing garden organics.
