Yarra Valley Water provides clean water to the people and businesses of Melbourne. Every day, around 30 per cent of the city’s population relies on Yarra Valley Water’s water and sanitation services.
In an Australian first, Yarra Valley Water has constructed a waste to energy facility linked to a sewage treatment plant. The purpose built facility provides an environmentally friendly disposal solution for commercial organic waste. The facility is expected to divert 33,000 tonnes of commercial food waste from landfill each year. Alongside all of this, ReWaste provides an additional stream of revenue for Yarra Valley Water through the collection of gate fees along with reduced energy costs which then puts downward pressure on their customer’s water bills
