Composting food scraps
According to the Auckland Council Waste Assessment, half of a typical household's weekly waste can be composted, rather than sent to landfill. Composting is a great way to keep the goodness in your garden and it's easier and cleaner than you may think.
Auckland Council provides support to help you get composting with workshops held regularly around the region. These free and informative courses introduce you to three of the most popular methods: traditional composting, bokashi bin and worm farming. To find out more visit the Compost Collective.
Sharewaste is a new scheme in Auckland. It connects people who have compost bins with people who have scraps but nowhere to put them. It is just starting out, but the more people that sign up, the easier it will become. Become a Sharewaste pioneer.
