Green Waste Processing

The Green Waste Processing Facility creates mulch from the clean, green waste gathered by council verge collections. Green Waste is also accepted from residents and commercial operators who bring it to the RRRC on trailers.

The shredder at the facility can process over 30,000 tonnes of green waste per year.

The RRRC is open 7 days a week, 8.00 to 4.00pm (except Christmas Day and New Years Day)

By-product
This facility produces mulch and high quality soil conditioners used by farmers, industry and local councils to reduce water consumption and evaporation.

Environmental outcome
100% of the green waste is recovered, with no residual waste going to landfill. Each year the Green Waste Processing Facility prevents over 33,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents (TCO2-e) from entering the atmosphere.
