Food scraps make up about half of the household waste sent to landfill. Composting is easy to do and prevents the wasteful transport of food scraps to landfill where they produce harmful greenhouse gases.

Composting has never been easier for Monash residents as you can now access free online tutorials about composting and then purchase a discounted compost bin or worm farm.

Please visit the Compost Revolution website and access online tutorials which provide instructions and tips on how to compost or worm farm effectively.

After you have participated in a tutorial and a quick quiz, you will be offered the option of buying a discounted compost bin or worm farm.

For more info, visit Compost Revolution or contact Waste Services on 9518 3297.
