Join the Home Composting revolution

  • 06 July 2021

Join the revolution – the home composting revolution that is!

Did you know that for a limited time all Newcastle residents can buy home composting and worm farming products at 75% off RRP, plus get free delivery?

If you’ve been looking for a way to do your bit for the environment, this might just be it.

In Newcastle around 30% of our red lid general waste bin is food waste. We throw away an average of 2.6kg of food waste per household per week - that's over 135kg per household each year! 

Home composting is one way we can combat this, so City of Newcastle has partnered with Compost Revolution to make it easier than ever to reduce waste to landfill while creating nutrient-rich fertiliser for your garden.

Keen to get involved? You just need to follow these three simple steps…

Step 1: Complete an easy training tutorial to find out which home composting product is right for your household. You'll also learn how to get the most out of it so you can enjoy home composting success.

Complete the training tutorial online on the Compost revolution website at a time convenient to you, or attend one of the free face-to face workshops below (bookings essential).

Saturday 10 July – Hamilton South

Monday 6 September – Waratah

Saturday 16 October – Wallsend

These workshops will cover:

  • What is compost and how it is made
  • The environmental benefits of composting
  • The basic compost recipe
  • Which bin is for you? The differences between compost bins, worm farms and Bokashi bins
  • Common composting problems and remedies
  • How to use your compost in the garden

Step 2: Complete the Compost Revolution quiz to show you understand how to use your chosen home composting product before claiming your offer.

Step 3: Purchase your discounted home composting product and have it delivered to your door, free.

Finally, give yourself a pat on the back! Now you can turn your simple food scraps into a natural fertilizer, reducing landfill and greenhouse gas emissions. Kudos to you for doing something good for our planet.

This project is a NSW Environment Protection Authority, Waste Less, Recycle More initiative, funded from the waste levy. See the City of Newcastle website for more information on the Home Composting Revolution and to find out more about food waste, including frequently asked questions.
