Reducing food waste to landfill and AWT's

Posted by antonellaceli on October 16, 2016 at 11:10 PM

Residents of the Mornington Peninsula Shire are interested in reducing food waste going to landfill. So I asked the question to the Officers via a candidate information request form on the 6th October, 2016.

 

"How far away are we as a Shire in starting to include organic food waste in our rubbish collection? If I recall we looking at the green waste bin as an option?"

 

The comprehensive answer provided by the Shire touches on Councils current position on seeking opportunities for organics processing facility for the SE region (Dandenong area); a group tender for provision of an AWT in the SE Melbourne region and possibly trialling the collection of organic waste.

 

The candidate information request froms are listed publicly on the Mornington Peninsula Website.
