Kickstart Compost Month is good news for anyone thinking about how to deal with composting food and garden scraps.

For the month of May, you can get an increased subsidy of $30 (usually $20) on compost bins, worm farms, worms or a Bokashi bucket. The subsidy is only available from participating retailers and is for purchases in May only.

As an extra bonus, Council is collaborating with participating retailers to run free drop-in compost roadshows throughout May.
