Curbside collection & composting service

Kerbside pickup, Haig Park drop off, or pledge for service near you

  • Not in our collection zone? (currently Hackett, Watson and Braddon only) 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.

  • Drop your scraps to us in Haig Park, Braddon on Thursday mornings, 8-9 am

    Drops-offs incur a $3.50 service fee unless you are subscribed to our composting service.

    Braddon, at our Haig Park composter, near the top of Mort st, in between Northbourne and the public toilet. (see map ref below)

Note: Our drop-off on Thursday 22 Dec did not run due to a Covid interruption. There will be a special once off drop-off at our Hackett composter (Mills st, behind the Hackett shops) on Monday 26 Dec, 8-9am.

Our Thursday morning drop-off will recommence from 29 Dec.
