Food waste is a valuable resource that can be recycled into compost for gardens.
By recycling food scraps in a kitchen caddy and recycling these in your green organics bin, you are helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reducing waste and lowering the cost of waste disposal to the community.
City of Marion residents can use a kitchen caddy to collect all food scraps in the kitchen for disposal into the green organics bin so it can be collected for compost rather than wasted.
Food waste makes up 35 per cent of the waste in our red bins. There are environmental and economic benefits of recycling food waste.
All food scraps, cooked and raw, can be collected in your kitchen caddy and placed into the green organics bin along with your garden clippings.
If you haven't yet received your kitchen caddy, please fill out this form so that we can arrange for you to get one.
Even better than diverting your food scraps from landfill is reducing your food wastage. Visit the Foodwise website to find recipe suggestions for using up leftovers in the fridge and reducing the amount of food that goes to waste.
