Prevent stinky bin juice and landfill gas by Signing Up our curbsite collection service
We'll supply a (post consumer) bucket and swap it for a clean one each week
Collect your food scraps over the week. For a list of what goes in, check out our FAQ.
We use carbon neutral transport to make the scraps collections worthwhile (carbon accounting)
Scraps are taken to our super efficient and well maintained composting hubs.
The compost is donated back to community gardens, schools and contributing members
Not in our collection zone? Anyone in Canberra can pledge with us. When we reach 50 pledges in an area then we can staff a new scraps pick-up route.
You can also attend our regular drop-off points. See details below and stop by to ask us about Capital Scraps or to drop off your kitchen scraps.
Drops-offs incur a $3.50 service fee unless you have already subscribed to our composting service.
