To reduce waste sent to landfill the City is offering residents workshops and subsidies on composting and worm farming equipment.
The City of Canning collects 4,286 tonnes of verge side green waste a year and a further 42,000 tonnes of waste from green top bins. Much of this goes to landfill but could be diverted from the waste stream or avoided altogether. By helping residents compost their food scraps and garden material we can help you create healthy and water wise gardens.
Composting Equipment - COMING SOON
The City is currently reviewing the process by which you can purchase composting equipment. Previously you were required to attend a workshop to purchase compost bins (220L), aerators, bokashi bins and bokashi mix. The new process will enable you to purchase equipment without having to attend a workshop. This is not currently available however the revised program will be launching soon.
If you would like to be notified when this will be available please sign up to our eNewsletter here
Worm Cafe Subsidy
The City of Canning also offers residents a $110 discount on the purchase of a worm cafe, the subsidised price is $115. As worm cafes need special care and failure can occur without proper instruction, worm cafes are only available for purchase from the City when attending a workshop.
