Green Waste, Gibsons & Gippsland Milk
Green waste from Melbourne council’s household kerbside collections is being composted by Gibsons Groundspread in Yarram, as part of MWRRG’s Back to Earth initiative, with the compost then used by farmers to improve pasture and crops .
Tim Missen, a fourth-generation Gippsland dairy farmer has been using compost from Gibsons Groundspread on his dairy farm for six years.
The compost adds nutrients back into the soil, making a major difference in soil composition and resulting in healthier cows. He tells viewers how plastic and other packaging in green waste bins is a real problem. >> View footage
