Organic Waste Diversion

Rode RAGE partners with local worm farm Davo's Worm Farms , Ballarat Health Services, McCain Foods and St John of God Hospital to divert large amounts of organic food waste from landfill, feed it to the worms and then return it to local soils. This process produces massive savings in greenhouse emissions and is significantly improving the productivity of local farms and market gardens and producing more nutritious and healthy food products.

Rode RAGE has partnered with Suez Environment to create a city wide
organic food waste collection program. We collect the food waste from
around 50 pubs, cafes, restaurants, boarding schools and residential
facility kitchens and take it to our worm farm thus creating cost
savings for the kitchens, reducing greenhouse emissions, saving all rate
payers in landfill costs and helping raise funds for our nominated
charities.
