Compost in action

The Back to Earth Initiative shows how everyone's food and green waste can be put to good use. It’s helping gardens at schools, kindergartens and community groups bloom and nourishing farms and open spaces. Click on the map to see where your food and green waste* goes.

*Only some councils offer food and green waste collection services – check the Your Council section for more information.
