Apartment Composting Program

Apartment-Composting-Ongoing.jpg Council's Apartment Composting Program provides an innovative solution for apartment dwellers to recycle their food waste by supporting the establishment of communal worm farms within the grounds of apartment buildings, with Owners Corporation and resident support.

The program has been developed as a result of trial programs undertaken in 2016 and 2017/18 and is now open to additional apartment buildings in Stonnington.

Participating apartment buildings will be provided with:

  • 40% off worm farms and onsite installation
  • A free onsite worm farming workshop for residents
  • Free kitchen caddies for residents
  • Access to information and support materials to help the worm farm operate successfully!
