Mixed waste organic material advice

The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) is stopping the use of mixed waste organic material on agricultural land.

Mixed waste organic material is a soil amendment made predominantly from the organic material in household general waste.

It is also known as mixed waste organic outputs (MWOO), Agriblend, Pasture-ARRT Rejuvenate and OGM (organic growth media).

This change does not apply to compost or biosolids.

More information is available from the NSW EPA website or by calling the NSW EPA Environment Line on 131 555.
