Waste Mapping


Regional organic waste mapping in South Australia, Blue Environment

Blue Environment undertook a survey to identify organic waste materials generated and processed within three local council areas in South Australia, viz. Adelaide Hills, Barossa and Mt Barker. The objective was to develop a detailed understanding of the current and potential future supply of organic waste material which would be suitable for recycling and resource recovery within the area. A detailed methodology for data gathering was developed and documented, facilitating the same approach to be used by Zero Waste in other areas of the state in future.
