Composting & wormfarming

WasteIt’s easy to recycle your food scraps from your home and business with compost bins and wormfarms. You can halve your rubbish and create your own high quality organic fertiliser for growing healthy veggies and plants. 

Composting and wormfarming also prevents wasteful transport of food scraps to landfill where they produce harmful greenhouse gases.

Working together to build a wormfarm. 

What’s best for my home?

Composts are often best for houses. They are bigger and can hold more food waste as well as garden waste. As they are more compact, wormfarms are great for apartments and small houses, and can go inside or on balconies in a shaded spot.
