Home Composting

Would you like to reduce the waste your household sends to landfill and create quality compost for your garden?

City of Bayswater residents can attend a free home composting workshop to learn about three methods to manage food waste at home: composting, worm farming and bokashi.

At the end of the workshop, you can take home your choice of a free compost bin, worm farm (with worms) or bokashi bin.

To help us better understand how local families reduce their kitchen waste through composting, we will ask you to track the amount of food waste your household diverts from landfill for eight weeks following the workshop, and participate in two short online surveys. This will help us find out how much waste is diverted from landfill and assist us to improve the program. 

This program is delivered in collaboration with Bayswater’s Enviro House, which presents the workshop and provides follow-up support for using your composting system.

The workshop covers:

  • Converting kitchen scraps and garden clippings into compost
  • How to set up and maintain a worm farm
  • What to feed your worms
  • How to set up and maintain a bokashi bin

We have the following workshops at our Civic Centre from 1-3pm.
