In Auckland, 50% of our household rubbish is organic waste such as food scraps and garden waste. Currently, this means that over 120,000 tonnes of organic waste gets sent into landfill each year where it remains forever.
But we can turn these startling statistics around! Thanks to the support of the Auckland City Council, the Compost Collective is teaching Aucklanders how to return organic waste back to the soil naturally through composting.
The Compost Collective website, and a team of keen composting tutors, are here to help you learn the basics of composting or build on the skills you already have. Free workshops are taking place across wider Auckland and discounts on a composting system that best suits your Auckland household are up for grabs!
Join us to learn how easy it is to compost your food scraps and garden waste and let’s look forward to a zero waste future Auckland together.
