City of Glen Eira wins AORA Victoria Award for new food scrap recycling service

We would like to congratulate all winners, finalists and participants in the Australian Organics Recycling Association (AORA) Victoria Awards, which took place on Wednesday 18 July.

We would especially like to highlight the City of Glen Eira, who won the Yarra Valley Water – Outstanding Local Government Initiative In Collection/Processing/Marketing for the implementation of their food scrap recycling program, and the City of Yarra, nominated for their Food Scraps Collection Project.

We were pleased to nominate both councils for their innovative and engaging programs, which align with our strategic objective of increasing organic waste recovery as outlined in the Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Implementation Plan 2016.

Case studies showcasing both projects will be featured in our guide for local government on introducing a kerbside food and garden organics collection service, to be released shortly.
