Green Waste

Green waste refers to streams such as bush trimmings, lawn clippings, garden waste and neglected indoor plants, which can be converted into compost for horticultural reuse.

What is Veolia’s offering?

Veolia offers collection, transfer and disposal services for this stream, and the details around which equipment would be best suited to your needs can be found here.


Veolia advises all clients to undergo a site waste assessment prior to their selection of equipment and schedules to receive best value for our services.

Why choose Veolia for your green waste management?

Specifically for municipalities, Veolia has extensive experience in helping different councils transition into adopting a green waste collections program and has successfully implemented this in areas such as Hobart in Tasmania through careful planning and resident education.

In addition, to help 11 metro Melbourne councils divert this stream from landfill, Veolia designed and constructed a new organic green waste facility at Bulla, about 30 kilometres from the city.  This facility uses state-of-the-art Australian technology to turn 85,000 tonnes of green waste into high-grade compost for agriculture every year, now known as Vital by Veolia.
