Research output: Contribution to journalOnline ResourceEducation


Everyday Australians, on average, create 180kg of food and garden waste every year. This means that a quarter of all landfill is consisting of organic food and plant materials. Once these materials begin to rot, they produce 15.3kg of greenhouse gases and methane omissions that in turn destroy the atmosphere and contribute to global warming, at a rate of 21 times that of carbon dioxide... That's a pretty confronting number!
