We’ve successfully had our general public composting bins at Manly Vale Community Garden for over 6 years now.
Of course it hasn’t all been smooth sailing. We’ve had our fair (unfair) share of yucky nappies, nappy wipes and all manner of plastic rubbish, but on the whole we feel you (and us) are making a great contribution to reducing landfill. Not to mention creating new soil to grow healthy fruit and vegetables (but that’s another story).
Well… Recycling your food scraps has got a whole lot easier. We now have 10 litre food grade recycled plastic buckets.
- Pop one on your kitchen bench, chuck in your food waste (no meat), add some torn up paper as you go.
- When it is full leave it in the compost area, up the back in the Garden, and grab a new bucket! How easy is that!
