From July 1 2015, Benalla Rural City’s urban residents now receive an organics waste service. The new green lidded organics bin is being collected weekly and the general rubbish bin will now be collected fortnightly.

Once collected, the organic material will be transported to Western Composting Technology’s state of the art organics processing facility in Shepparton, where it is processed into compost, suitable for use on broad acre farms right down to backyard vegie patches.
