Compost Cyclers offers residents and businesses a user-pays bicycle pickup service to process food waste at local composting sites. This compost provides a further economic stream through its sale to local food growing organisations and individuals.
Food waste in landfill has a harmful effect on the environment. This service allows the community to engage in a practical solution to the problem and convert unnecessary waste into a resource. The compost will enrich soils for food growing, thereby strengthening local food security.
Cultivating Community has extensive experience in food waste management. Compost Cyclers is based on the proven food waste collection model developed through “Food Know How” a program Cultivating Community ran in partnership with the City of Yarra.
