Mission compostable

Keen to be green? You can also use compostable food waste bin liners to make it easier to cut the amount of organic waste going into landfill.

Where can I buy the compostable bin liners

Compostable bin liners make recycling food a piece of cake!

Using a compostable bin liner in your kitchen caddy may be the solution to preventing unwanted odours and flies, particularly in the warmer months or at times when you have little other green waste to blend.

Council approved compostable bin liners are available for purchase from :

  1. Ecovend vending machines in Yamba Shopping Fair, at the bottom of the escalator in Grafton Shoppingworld and at the Queen Street entrance to Coles Mall in Grafton ($10 per roll of 75);
  2. Hardware outlets throughout the Clarence Valley;
  3. Online from ecovend

Please note compostable bin liners must meet the Australian Standard AS 4736 and be labelled compostable. Keep up to date with other organic news by visiting our website or phone our Waste Hotline 1800 335599.

Liners are not sold from Council offices
