Better Soil for a Better Future

International Compost Awareness Week (5-11 May) is a chance to talk about the importance of composting to create a sustainable future.

Composting turns food scraps and garden waste into rich natural fertiliser. Compost can then be used to improve the health of your soil and plants.

Greater Dandenong residents can add their food scraps to their green lid garden waste bin. The kerbside collection delivers to a facility that turns this waste into high quality compost that is used on our local parks and reserves, and by farmers across Victoria.

There are several ways you can compost at home, including through the use of compost bins, worm farms and Bokashi buckets.

Visit the Compost Bins and Worm Farms webpage of the website to find out more.
