Reduce landfill waste by composting and worm farms

12 Mar 12

Sunshine Coast Council, in conjunction with EnviroCom Australia, is proud to present free composting and worm farm workshops from April through to June 2012 at various library locations.

Residents will learn how to reduce their landfill waste by up to 50 per cent. Workshops will also demonstrate how to set up a worm farm and composting system, how an organic recycling system works plus any troubleshooting tips.

Library and Gallery Services Manager, Ross Duncan said with more people choosing to downsize their living accommodation, worm farms are an excellent way to recycle food and garden waste.

"This is a great opportunity to share alternative methods of green composting with the community," he said.

"These popular sessions are sure to book out fast, so get in quick to ensure you don’t miss out."
