Bulla Organics Facility, VIC


The Veolia organic waste facility, located in Bulla, 30km North of Melbourne, will use state-of-the-art Australian-made technology to turn thousands of tonnes of organic waste into high-grade compost.

The Bulla organic waste facility will process 85,000 tonnes of bush trimmings, lawn clippings, garden waste, food scraps and neglected indoor plants annually. The highly efficient facility will convert the otherwise landfill-bound waste into approximately 60,000 tonnes of high-grade compost, which will, in turn, be sold to commercial operators, such as those in commercial scale horticulture and metropolitan soil markets. Returning otherwise wasted nutrients to the soil from which it came.
The new facility will receive, process and repurpose organic waste delivered by the Metropolitan Waste Management Group and 11 participating councils in the north and west of Melbourne. The facility is currently contracted to handle the organic waste processing for the region until 2027 and expects to continue its work returning organic material to the environment well into the foreseeable future.
