Join councils across Australia and spark a Compost Revolution in your neighbourhood!
The Compost Revolution service provides an effective, low cost way to educate your residents about waste reduction. Our online worm farming and composting tutorials, developed with three leading Sydney councils, are designed to provide the know-how normally provided via face to face training sessions.
Residents have fun while learning in the comfort of their own homes, then take a short quiz to ensure they understand how to use their bin. Successful revolutionaries then use our super simple e-commerce page to claim a subsidised compost bin or worm farm (inc live worms!).
It’s a simple, effective and proven way to reduce your council’s carbon footprint and waste expenses.
* Based on a survey of over 600 participating residents.
Reasons you’ll love the Compost Revolution
Reduce your waste costs
With year on year retention of use exceeding 90%*, and a system designed so your workload remains the same as volumes grows, the programme is scalable resulting in substantial waste and cost reductions. In fact, our pilot project reached cost-parity in just two years and diverted 387 tonnes with fully subsidised products and a dedicated part-time staff member.
Get out in the community!
Let us handle the technical training online so you can get out in the community and run working bees that actually create a lasting legacy in the community. Your participants will arrive with the basic knowledge needed and you can focus on advanced concepts and getting stuff done!
Edit ready-made tutorials
Our proven tutorials were developed with council training experts and are included in your membership. Even amongst experts there are different approaches, so all of your training material is easily edited to suit your needs. Council staff can log in to update content, respond to registrations and check on statistics.
Reach more of your residents
Our online tutorials allow you to deliver easy to understand instructions to many more residents than face-to-face methods. Online training provides the majority of residents who don’t have the time to attend workshops with a way to participate, allowing you to radically scale up your waste education programme.
Bin to Door delivery service
Give your residents a seamless experience. We email a tax invoice and status updates as we deliver to their door within a week of you approving an order. We even make it easy for you to manage orders, track deliveries and monitor your spend via our custom designed admin system.
Designed in partnership with councils across Australia
"The Compost Revolution website has dramatically increased our reach to successfully engage a new audience and build community momentum in sustainability."
Ecological Footprint Project Officer, Randwick Council
"We launched just a few weeks back in January on minimal promotion via facebook and with a discount of 50% that we felt would be attractive to our residents and would also create a financial commitment to the program in their minds. Shortly after our launch we included a flyer in our rates notice and we were very impressed with the uptake in the first few weeks – and with 260 orders already fulfilled and new orders being placed daily we're thrilled with the Compost Revolution and the Bin to Door Service.”
Education Officer, Pittwater Council
"We joined the Compost Revolution because we wanted to overhaul our home worm farming programme to include composting and reduce the workload associated with worm farm ordering and distribution. The system seamlessly handles all of the payment and order tracking which frees me up to work on our community outreach and other initiatives. Our residents love the fact they get a great quality product delivered to their door at a great price and we're delivering on our waste and carbon reduction targets – so I love it too!"
Waste Education Officer
Environment & Sustainability, Wyndham City Council
Our independently audited results2 are conclusive. We diverted 387 tonnes in 2012 with 800 tonnes projected for 2013 – while cost / tonne went way down. After just 2 years, it’s cheaper for us to backyard compost with residents than to truck food waste to landfill or AWT.
