Why should I compost?
Up to half of the rubbish that Maroondah households create is organic waste such as paper, food scraps and garden waste. By composting, we can reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.
Composting has many benefits for you and your garden, such as:
- creating a rich fertiliser for your garden
- adding important minerals, nutrients, bacteria and micro-organisms to soil
- increasing the water retention of soil
- making more space in your bin (you can downsize to an 80 litre garbage bin).
How can I learn more?
