This FACT indicates the percentage of each city’s population that always recycle kitchen and food waste, or that use for it compost. Recycling organics is an effective way to reduce the amount of rubbish that goes into landfill, and help establish healthy green spaces in people's homes. A propensity to recycle food and kitchen scraps can offer insight into environmental practices of a community on the whole.

The city with the highest percentage is Canberra at 35 percent, followed closely by Adelaide at 33.5 percent. The city with the lowest percentage is Sydney at 21.5.
