Composting & worm farms

Compost and worm farmCompost bins and worm farms are two great ways to recycle your fruit and vegetable scraps at home and turn organic material into rich nutrients for the garden.

Composting and worm farming at home is simple, and good for the environment by reducing the amount of organic waste that goes to land fill and creating a more natural and healthier place to live.

Worm farms produce great natural fertiliser for your garden, take up very little space and are easy to use.


Mackay Regional Council sponsor free composting and worm farming workshops each year at Mackay Community Gardens, Streeter Avenue, West Mackay. These workshops highlight the benefits of composting and assist householders with setting up a successful compost or worm farming system at home.
