Composting and worm farms

All you need to know about composting and worm farms.

Composting and worm farms

Up to half of our general waste bin is food or garden scraps. Most of this organic waste can be composted at home. By using a compost or worm farm you can:

  • reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. This prevents greenhouse gas emissions getting released.
  • create nutrient rich fertiliser for your gardens. This improves soil quality and water retention.
  • save money on water and artificial fertilisers.
