Logan City Council will host a composting and worm farm workshop at the Browns Plains Waste and Recycling Facility this Saturday, November 12 as part of National Recycling Week.
The free workshop, from noon-1pm, will provide an introduction into composting and the skills to turn leftovers, scraps and garden waste into fertiliser.
Environment Chair, Councillor Jon Raven, urged families and individuals to come along and get started on an important environmental activity.
“Composting and worm farming are hugely important for the environment and helps reduce waste and the amount of rubbish we send to landfill,” Cr Raven said.
There are also two upcycling workshops – a children’s session from 10am-11.30am, and for adults, a workshop is on from 1pm-2.30pm.
To register for all workshops, visit logan.qld.gov.au/events and search for Upcycle Recycle Day.
Council offers a $50 rebate to residents who buy an organic recycling system such as a compost bin or worm farm.
The rebate is a digital debit card which can be accessed via a smart phone.
