Kickstart Compost Month November 2019
November is the next kickstart compost month – it’s an ideal time to put your food and garden scraps to work. Not only can you save money on your waste bills and create compost for your garden, but it’s also a great way to take personal action on reducing greenhouse gas emissions by keeping foodwaste out of landfill.
A subsidy is available to help with the purchase of a compost bin, worm farm, worms or an EM Bokashi system. The subsidy is available to every household in Nelson, and increases to $30 during Kickstart Compost Month. The discount is available from our participating retailers.
As an extra bonus, Council is collaborating with participating retailers to run free drop-in compost roadshows throughout May.
Wednesday 6 November 6 pm - 8pm
Saturday 23 November 1pm - 3pm
