Discover how to compost at home and support commercial composting services in Tasmania
Composting is nature at its best.
Organic matter – anything that has once been alive – will decompose over time into natural fertiliser, known as compost.
It’s a win-win situation. You add food scraps and garden clippings, your waste is kept out of landfill, and you end up with the best soil you’ve ever had.
Yet almost half the waste we currently send to Tasmanian landfills is compostable.
We’re actually paying to dump waste that could be boosting our gardens.
If you’ve ever thought about composting at home, what are you waiting for?
What’s going into your bin?
Recent surveys show that we’re putting far too much organic waste in our kerbside bins.
Around 40% of Tasmanian household garbage is made up of food scraps, garden waste, and other organic rubbish.
And it’s all headed for landfill.
Here’s the outrageous reality: we’re paying to dump green waste in a system that’ll generate harmful greenhouse gases.
Isn’t it time to rethink your waste?
