Draft Queensland Organics Strategy

Reducing organic waste

The Queensland Government has developed the draft Queensland Organics Strategy 2022–2032 (Strategy) to propose how we can reduce the amount of organic waste that goes to landfill and look at other ways to avoid, reuse and recycle.

Organic waste includes garden, food, food processing, bio-solids and agricultural wastes. It makes up around half of what Queenslanders throw away each week in their wheelie bin and is one of the main types of waste sent to landfill.

Although organic waste is often seen as ‘natural’, when it breaks down it releases methane, a greenhouse gas that is at least 28 times more potent than carbon dioxide.

Some of the organic waste produced by Queensland homes and businesses is already being converted into new products including soil, potting mix and mulch. 

Have your say

Government, industry, businesses and community members all have a role to play in managing organic waste. 

Take this short survey or email your feedback to ResourceRecovery@des.qld.gov.au.

Consultation closes at 5:00pm on Monday 1 November 2021.

More information is available on the website.
