1 May: Compost Revolution

Clarke Reserve

Waverley Council has received $100,000 from the state government through the Stronger Communities Fund towards our upgrade of the playground at Clarke Reserve, Vaucluse.

This funding is in addition to the $150,000 Council had budgeted in 2018 for the project.

Council will further consult with the community about how the additional funding is used, and is holding a Have Your Say day from 9am to 12 noon on Saturday 4 May at the reserve.

Compost Revolution

Australia currently generates around 50 million tonnes of waste every year of which 7.6 million tonnes is food waste.

International Composting Awareness Week, 5-11 May, promotes composting as a low cost way to divert food waste from landfills and return its nutrients and carbon back to soil.

Our Compost Revolution program provides compost bins and worm farms to Waverley residents at 80% off the recommended retail price and free to local schools and early education centres.

The program has already diverted more than 10 million kilograms of food waste. To register, visit https://compostrevolution.com.au/waverley/
