Bio Basket - Recycled Nutrients

Posted by: admin July 19th, 2014

Kitchen scraps are a valuable resource that can be turned into compost - which in turn can be used on your garden. If we send kitchen scraps to landfill then we are burying this valuable resource as well as contributing to harmful gases which are released into the atmosphere when food breaks down

 

The Port Adelaide Enfield Council has recently distributed Kitchen Organics Bio Baskets to residents which will enable households to divert food waste.

Food waste and other organic material make up around half of what is placed in rubbish bins. They are valuable resources that council will collect and process into nutrient-rich compost.

Many residents, lucky enough to have a back yard, will use their own compost heaps to recycle kitchen organic waste, but for those residents without access to a from landfill. 

Using your Bio Basket will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and divert thousands of tonnes of compostable material from landfill every year.

Many residents, lucky enough to have a back yard, will use their own compost heaps to recycle kitchen organic waste, but for those residents without access to a backyard composting system this is a fabulous way to contribute to greening our city.
