Celebrating and showcasing compost innovation and soil improvement across New South Wales.
The Australian Organics and Recycling Association (AORA) is holding the Annual Compost Awards Night dinner on Friday 5th of July.
AORA works with the New South Wales government to raise awareness of the environmental and economic benefits of recycling organic resources across Australia. In NSW, since 2003, there has been an 80% increase in garden and food waste diverted from landfill and a 13% increase in compost sold over the same period. This equates to more than two million tonnes of organic material being diverted from landfill statewide in 2011.
The AORA Leadership Awards aim to showcase the range of applications, the development of specific products and the ways in which Local Government, landscapers and growers have used compost products to improve soil health. The Minister for Environment, the Hon. Robyn Parker has accepted an invitation from AORA to attend and present the awards. The Minister will recognise outstanding entrants in each category and present a training award of $1,500 to the two winning councils.
