About The Initiative

The Back to Earth Initiative is your chance to be a part of something that benefits everyone. By using your council’s food and green waste collection service correctly, you can help create useful compost, to nourish gardens and farms, and reduce the amount of food and green waste dumped in landfill.

The Back to Earth Initiative is run by the Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Group (MWRRG) in partnership with Victorian councils and industry with support from Sustainability Victoria and the regional waste and resource recovery groups. The Back to Earth Initiative shows us that what we put into our green bins can become a useful resource to nourish gardens and farms.
