Minimise your waste

Ballina Council has put an organic bins system in place because we recognise that composting at home can be tricky and attracts rodents which can be a problem in urban areas.

If you do want to try to turn your organic waste into compost at home, here are some guides that will help you.

The two most popular methods are:

Home Composting

Worm farming

Home composting items can be purchased at your local hardware store. 

Avoiding food waste
