In Australia, over half of the household material that ends up at the tip is organic waste. When it’s buried, it can lead to groundwater contamination and the production of greenhouse gases. One of the best ways to break down organic matter is to use composting worms to convert food scraps into nutrient-rich, pH neutral worm castings, which produce a high quality soil conditioner. If only 5% of households composted their organic waste, it would save approximately $170,000 per year in tipping fees and will dramatically reduce the amount of waste going to landfill, therefore reducing methane emissions from landfill. We have worms. About 1000 of them. They don’t smell. They make no noise. And they eat most of our organic waste. If you live in the City of Sydney council you can attend a home composting and worm farming workshop and receive a free farm to get you started.
