In January, WHPS began composting our food waste. We have used compost tumblers as well as green waste council bins. Our tumblers filled up quite quickly and are nearly ready to be emptied on to our garden beds.
With our Woolworths Junior Landcare Grant we were able to purchase some more compost systems. These systems are dug into the ground and worms come to eat the food waste.
Every class has two Waste Warriors who are in charge of emptying their classroom’s compost buckets.
WHPS has around 240litres (that’s the size of a big wheelie bin) of food scraps a fortnight that we divert from landfill and compost instead. GO WHPS!
