Community composting hubs
Brisbane City Council has partnered with a number of community gardens around Brisbane to help residents turn kitchen scraps into nutrients for soil.
Food waste is a big part of what goes into Brisbane’s bins. Composting helps to reduce the amount of organic waste we send to landfill. It is an easy way to build an understanding of where our food comes from. It also shows how valuable our kitchen scraps can be in the cultivation and harvesting cycle.
This program encourages residents living near community composting hubs to regularly contribute their kitchen scraps to community garden compost bin. With support from Council and local garden volunteers, residents can learn about the benefits of composting. They will also learn other ways to reduce the amount of organic waste they create.
Registered participants can obtain a free kitchen caddy from their local ward office. The caddy will help them collect and transport scraps to their local composting hub. On-site signage at hubs makes composting quick and easy.

Community gardens in Brisbane wishing to nominate to become a community composting hub can email the project team. Include details of the location and proposed compost bin placement area.
Council is working hard to grow our community composting network. If there isn’t one close to your home yet, we encourage you to check out ShareWaste. You can connect with neighbours who are interested in accepting your scraps to feed their worm farm, chickens or compost stations.
Register online to be involved at a community composting hub near you.
Our hubs rely on dedicated volunteers to continue our vital work of diverting food waste from landfill. By volunteering at your local community composting hub, you'll learn composting skills while helping to reduce food waste to landfill, and meet like-minded people.
