Subiaco serves up organic waste win

WA’s City of Subiaco Council, together with 11 local businesses, has saved almost 12 tonnes of organic waste from heading to landfill in just six months as part of its food organics program.

The program – which kicked off in late 2020 – provides a dedicated food organics bin and weekly collection service for businesses; with the collected food waste then made into compost.

As well as reducing waste to landfill and helping to create a more circular economy, the program also reduces general waste collection and processing costs.

The organic waste diverted from landfill was produced by 11 businesses between December 2020 and May 2021. 

“Any City of Subiaco business is able to take part and help make our community a more sustainable place to live,” Council said in a statement.
