Council aims to reduce waste to landfill by encouraging composting of food and green waste at home. Composting for the home garden will not only reduce waste but also conserve water and add valuable nutrients to soil for healthy plant growth.
Singleton WaterWise Compost Gardens Program rolled out in 2014/2015, where participants received a free tumbler and starter pack, and on-going information and support from Council staff throughout the project. This included user surveys, feedback opportunities via the Council’s project website and Waste Bin audits recording waste reductions achieved.
While free tumblers are no longer available, we do have some available for purchase at our Burragan Recycle Shop at the Singleton Waste Facility for a small fee.
We thank all participants who have answered our survey so far and encourage any other participants who would like to fill in our survey to go to Singleton WaterWise Compost Gardens Program and let us know how you're going with your compost bin.
This project is a NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy.
