About us

We're an EPA-licensed waste treatment and composting facility owned by Gippsland Water.

We're growing. Our facility is set to undergo a major expansion during 2023 and 2024 that will mean we can recycle more organic materials and manufacture more certified compost products. Find out more about the expansion.

Previously known as the Soil and Organic Recycling Facility (SORF), we're located on 350 hectares of the 8500+ hectare Dutson Downs property we manage, not far east from Sale.

What we do

We use multiple methods to turn waste into compost, reducing the amount of waste going to landfill. Each year we accept up to 250,000 tonnes of waste (including industrial and reportable priority waste) and manufacture approximately 60,000 tonnes of compost certified to Australian standards.

Our team

Our Gippsland Regional Organics team is made up of 22 people who work across management, technical, administrative and operational roles.
