Latest news

  • Although we were previously servicing 9 different suburbs across Canberra earlier this year, the households that we were collecting off were too far and few between (literally). So now we're asking for people to pledge to sign up to the service before we can operate in any particular suburb.

  • If you would like to see scraps collected and turned into compost in your suburb pledge your interest and make sure to tell all your neighbours about us!

  • We are currently running two regular drop-off points
    • Watson, Wednesday from 7:30-9:30 am
    • O'Connor, Thursday from 8-10 am 

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