More composting products
We have other popular composting products that are not a part of the Compost Revolution program. These products are available for purchase at the Manningham Garden Waste Centre:
|Worm farm - includes worm farm kit, 1000 worms and worm blanket.|
Worm farms are designed mainly for food scraps, so they are ideal for homes with small yards or no garden. They are low maintenance and a good alternative for people with limited mobility. Worm farms break down food waste quickly and produce fertiliser more quickly than a compost bin will produce compost.

Compost bin - Gedye style 220 litre
Compost bins require a mix of both food and garden waste. They are perfect for people that want to compost a larger amount of material however they do require weekly attention. Compost bins need aeration, a range of materials and moisture. They work best if placed in full sun.

What goes in a Green Cone?
How does the Green Cone work?
Natural micro-organisms and worms migrate freely in and out of the basket at the base of the cone, breaking down the waste. Nutrient rich water enters the surrounding soil. The digestion chamber creates aerobic conditions to reduce methane production.
It must be placed in a sunny position and dug into the ground about ½ metre allowing the liquid to enter the surrounding soil.
