Melbourne Laneway Cleaned Up

Degraves St in the Melbourne is home to around 40 food and beverage businesses, each of which used to have its own waste disposal arrangments that meant hundreds of truck journeys into and out of the city each year and which resulted in most, if not all, of the food waste ending up in landfill. But now the City of Melbourne has created a Resource Recovery Centre adjacent to Degraves St where, in a large GaiaRecycle system, they process all the food waste and eliminate the need for all those truck journeys. The waste, instead of rotting in landfill and producing methane, is transformed into a sterile, nutrient rich soil amendment. Great initiative, City of Melbourne!
