Start a Compost Revolution in your LGA

A full service program to reduce household waste in your community.

The Compost Revolution is an award-winning program designed to help councils dramatically increase home composting across their LGA. Originally piloted by three Sydney councils with support from the NSW EPA, the Compost Revolution has been designed with councils for councils to make it easy to run an engaging home composting program for your residents.

All you have to do is promote the program and we take care of the rest.  The Compost Revolution comes with a suite of customisable tutorials, an easy to use online ordering system and our Bin-to-Door delivery service which ensures hassle free delivery direct to your resident's doorstep.

Select from the following items to offer your residents:

Your own web site

Online tutorials

Highly effective online tutorials teach residents how to care for their compost, Bokashi bin or worm farm. Our tutorials were designed with leading council experts and have a greater than 90 % success rate!

Home delivery

Our Industry leading Bin-to-Door service delivers residents their order via Australia Post. Includes parcel tracking, email notifications and email/telephone support.

Integrated e-commerce

Secure e-commerce with adjustable prices so you can subsidise products as much or as little as you like. We make it easy for you to manage orders, track deliveries and monitor your spend.

Real-time analytics

Advanced reporting including a built-in dashboard so you can track and report results in real-time (including CO2 avoided, tonnes of waste diverted and cost savings).

Data driven, results focussed

Each year we conduct a comprehensive survey of participants to ensure we know exactly how we're doing. This data is collated and provided as a report to councils (on our Professional and Premium plans) so that you can refine your approach to achieve even better results.

Language pack

We're bringing the revolution to CALD communities across Australia! Starting with 5 languages (Simplified Chinese, Arabic, Italian, Greek and Vietnamese). Residents can change languages anytime and see the full translated experience on participating councils. See it in action here.

Residents take a 15 minute tutorial, sit a quick quiz and then purchase quality products subsidised by Council (by as much or as little as you like). Each week you approve the orders and we handle the rest, from invoicing to shipping logistics. All you need to do is to administer and promote the program (we help there too with our optional Marketing Booster Pack).

Here's what council officers are saying about the program:

"The Compost Revolution is a fantastic platform for residents who enjoy the convenience of online learning and delivery to their doors. Since our launch back in October, and an initial flyer in the rates notices, over 400 households have completed the tutorial and the quiz, and we are still getting orders every day! The program is great for residents who have hectic timetables and are unable to attend face-to-face workshops. The Compost Revolution is a great fit, contributing to meet our holistic approach to community education and engagement."

Sarah Callus

Resource Recovery Education Officer, The Hills Shire 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.”

Emma Mackay

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!"

Donna Shiel

Waste Education Officer

Environment & Sustainability,  Wyndham City Council

 

"Our independently audited results 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."
