Composting and Worm Farming

Composting, worm farming or using a bokashi bin are ideal ways to turn unavoidable food scraps into nutrient-rich fertiliser for your garden. You can buy subsidised composting systems through Council or via the Compost Revolution (which incorporates on-line tutorials and trouble-shooting guides).

All worm farms and bokashi buckets purchased from Council are currently discounted by 50%.

This does not include Compost Revolution stock.

Sharewaste

If you do not have the space or the capacity to set up a worm farm or compost bin, the Sharewaste site might be of interest.

It connects people who wish to compost their kitchen scraps with their neighbours who are already composting, worm-farming or keeping chickens. 

Pet Waste Composting

The benefits of using a composting system to deal with your pet waste are:

  • a reduction in the number of plastic bags you use
  • the diversion of pet waste away from landfill
  • a simple no-fuss system that eliminates odour
  • it is a discreet inground system – only the lid is above ground level
  • it returns carbon and microbes to the soil and helps enrich your garden

Council is subsidising the cost of the pet waste systems (including free delivery) through the Compost Revolution Website.
