Composting

What is a composting hub?

Community composting hubs assist people who are unable to compost their food waste at home.

Moreland residents can register to use a community composting hub where they can take their food waste for composting. Hubs are located at schools and community gardens where the composted material is used to grow food.

The hubs are made up of worm farms that house a special breed of worm able to break down up to 2kg of food waste per bin per day. The worms eat the food and produce castings and worm juice.

Register to use a composting hub

Please fill in the registration form if you would like to register to use a composting hub at:

  • Moomba Park Primary School, 
  • PepperTree Place Community Nursery, or
  • West Brunswick Community Garden.  

Community composting hubs are accessible to local residents and available for use at any time. See below for maps and addresses of the four hubs in Moreland.

Due to the high demand, site registrations for the Sydney Road Community School Composting Hub are now closed.

All registered community composting hub users are entitled to receive a free 7 litre kitchen food waste caddy to transport their food waste to their selected hub.
