The Andrews Labor Government is delivering new ways to use our organic waste, boosting jobs across Victoria and diverting waste from landfill while halving emissions by 2030.

Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio today announced $3.6 million to help put our household garden waste and food scraps to good use in Victoria’s farms, parks and gardens.

Six projects have received $1.6 million through the Recycling Victoria Research and Development Fund – Organic to boost the value of recycled organics and support agriculture while also looking at ways to improve soil quality, boost crop production and develop recycled organics markets.

A further $2 million in grants has opened today through the Recycling Victoria Organics Market Fund to create new markets for the growing volume of recycled organics products.
