Project Status: When you need to do this

Recycle garden organics

What you need to do

If your apartment building doesn’t have a green lid bin

Ask your strata manager if a garden organics bin can be ordered for your building. In the meantime, you can book a free pick-up for garden waste that is bundled and tied together.

Book this under furniture and bulky household items. Branches shouldn’t be more than 1m long or 10cm thick. We don’t collect tree stumps, logs, trunks, soil or potting mix.

Before you start

Consider recycling your garden organics at home by composting or mulching.

If you’d like to learn more about setting up your own compost at home, visit Sydney City Farm and sign up for a workshop.

Where it all goes

Your garden organics are collected and taken to a local processor where they are recycled into mulch, soil conditioners and compost. These products are then sold into the commercial market.
