Community composting hubs | Brisbane City Council

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 and composting helps to reduce the amount of organic waste we send to landfill. Composting is an easy way to build an understanding of where our food comes from and 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 the support of Council and local garden volunteers, residents also learn more about the many benefits of composting and other great ways to reduce the amount of organic waste they create.

Registered participants can obtain a free kitchen caddy from their local ward office to help them collect and transport scraps to their local composting hub. Onsite signage at hubs makes composting quick and easy.
