Lake Macquarie residents will be going “greener” from the end of July.
Households will be able to put all food waste into their green bin, as part of an effort to further reduce landfill.
“You’ll be able to put in prawns, meat bones, peelings from your vegetables, pizzas, whatever people eat you can put in,” mayor Kay Fraser says.
The council says the waste will be turned into high-quality mulch and compost.
