Help Us Divert Waste From Landfill

Adelaide Cemeteries are now trialling a two-bin system throughout our cemeteries

Where previously all waste collected went to landfill, we’re now asking you to help minimise our environmental footprint by sorting your waste before throwing it out.

Bins will now be separated into general waste and green/organics waste – with bins clearly marked with the appropriate sign. Where possible these bins will be adjacent to each other and we appreciate you sorting your waste before disposing of it.

To learn more about what can go in each bin, see the categories below. We thank you for helping us to minimise our impact on the earth.

  • Fake Flowers, Bouquet Wrappings & Cellophane
  • Soft Plastics
  • Broken Glass
  • Ceramics
  • Fabric
  • Textiles
  • Real Flowers – Please remove all wrappings and cellophane prior to disposal
  • Meat & Bones
  • Fish & Shellfish
  • Grains & Pasta
  • Dairy Products
  • Eggs & Shells
  • Plate Scrappings
  • Fruit & Vegetables
  • Coffee Filters & Grounds and Teabags

Planning a funeral can be challenging, so we’re ready with the advice and guidance that you need.
