500 Bags of Free Compost!

We were feeling a little depressed after the election result and the general state of world affairs so we decided to put a little love out into the universe!

This winter we have 500 bags of compost to give away. The compost is in breathable, repurposed zero waste hessian coffee sacks and is around 20kg per bag. We're not weighing it but feels like 4 sacks of potatoes :)

We have 2 free bags per household or 5 free bags per community organisation up for grabs. We will also be offering the option to reorder at a heavily reduced rate of $10 per bag (usually $15).

To apply, send the following info to [email protected]:

  1. Name
  2. Email
  3. Organisation (if applicable)
  4. Instagram and Facebook details
  5. Photo of yourself and the space that you will be using the compost (existing or proposed garden)

And share your answer to one of the following questions:

  • What is your favourite thing to grow and why?
  • What is your greatest gardening tip/life hack?
  • What makes your garden special?
  • What are your goals for reducing your footprint and living 'lightly' this year?
  • Who are your mentors and what have you learnt from them? (Doesn't have to be garden related)

  • A one line answer is just fine :)

    Give us permission to post your photo and tag you in it once we have delivered your compost :)

    We will be ready to deliver before the end of August but will wait until there are a bunch of people in your area to save on fuel. Compost just in time for spring planting season ! Yeeeowww!

About us

We convert wasted organic resources to nutrient rich compost and return it to our Aussie farmland.

One of the main questions that people ask us when we start working together is 'What actually happens to our waste after you have picked it up?' We have a very simple answer for you. We don't think of what we pick from you as waste! Here at Compost Collectors we call this 'stuff' an organic resource, and the first step is taking it to our processing station (which is more like a farm!) less than 25 km from the CBD of Melbourne.

Here we put your old apple cores into a rotopress and within 72 hours you end up with beautiful, rich, organic gold for your garden! But, it doesn't stop there... we like to support small businesses, especially urban farmers trying to do the right thing, so we make sure our great compost ends up in their gardens and farms so they can grow great food for you. It is a simple system, but it works. We are proud to be one of the only businesses in Melbourne offering a true closed loop service. We also truly care about offering you great value – this means a minimum price for bin pick ups and no lock in contracts.

We work with all kinds of businesses across Melbourne and just want to connect with like minded people. We don't mind if your waste comes from a florist, restaurant or cafe, food processing plant, aged care facility, school or green grocer...we will get you onto a run in your local area as soon as we can.
