Composting products and tips

Did you know that about half of the material in the average household kerbside garbage bin in Bayside is food waste? Much of this material can be composted.

Composting is a great way of turning your food scraps, grass and garden clippings (organics) into an excellent source of free garden food and soil improver, as well as reducing the amount of waste in your kerbside bin.

Where to purchase composting products

We do not currently sell and supply compost bins and worm farms. You can purchase a range of composting products from your local hardware store.

What type of composting product is right for you?

Depending on how much organic material your home produces, there is the right size composting system for you. There are even composting options for people who live in apartments or have limited outdoor space.

Compost bins

Compost bins take most food scraps and garden waste and are suitable for families and large gardens. Find out more about compost bins.

Worm farms

Worm farms are perfect for small spaces and take a range of food scraps. They are also great educational tools for kids to learn about the environment. Find out more about worm farms.


Biofermenters can take just about all food scraps and you can even keep it in your kitchen. Ideal for apartments and units, they are a convenient and practical way to transform your kitchen waste into a nutrient-rich soil conditioner. Find out more about biofermenters.
