Benefits of Organic Waste Recycling

Organic waste recycling helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve the garden’s health.

For a city burdened with landfill problems, Brisbane is in need of strong community commitment to minimise waste. The composting and worm farm workshop is one way of educating residents on how to lessen food waste.

In Brisbane, food waste is reportedly a huge part of what goes to the city’s bins that go to the landfills.

Mulch and compost also provide significant benefits to your garden. Using these organic soil additives, you get to:

  • Spend less time weeding and watering your garden;
  • Have less need for artificial fertiliser;
  • Produce healthier soil;
  • Save more time and money.

The free compost and worm farm workshop is also available in various times and areas in Brisbane. It is open to all ages.

The council reminds participants to wear a hat, flat enclosed shoes and to BYO sunscreen and drinking water.

Bookings are essential. Call 3403 888 for to reserve a slot.
