Organic Waste Collection trial at Albury Wodonga campus

Most staff buildings will now have organic waste collection of food waste, tissues and paper towels (including where these are used in toilets) from June 2019.

The cleaning staff will collect these bins daily as part of the regular waste collection service.

The service accepts all the same things the residential organics system collects but if you have any questions feel free to contact CSU Green csugreen@csu.edu.au or see the Halve Waste A-Z guide for a full list of what can go into the organics bins

Reduce greenhouse gases and landfill by turning your food waste into compost with CSU Organics. The green lid bins and kitchen caddies are located at Orange and Port Macquarie campuses. Take a look at the CSU Organics factsheet [pdf] for what you can place in the organics bin.

Composting toilets (Albury-Wodonga)

Sewerage from several buildings at Albury-Wodonga Campus is treated in dry, composting toilets. These toilets are designed to break down all solid and liquid wastes into a dry compost and they remove odours using a small fan. The solid compost is regularly buried and incorporated into the subsoil around the campus as an organic fertiliser.
