Food scraps make up about 40% of the household waste. Composting is easy to do, prevents the wasteful transport of food scraps to landfill and creates a great soil for your garden.

Composting has never been easier for Monash residents, who can now buy a discounted compost bin, worm farm or Bokashi bin through a Council rebate.

Please visit Compost Community to order your discounted products online. More information: Composting.
