Choose a method

Choose whether a compost bin, worm farm, or bokashi bin is right for you based on your volume and type of food/garden waste, available space, and budget.



Compost works by aerobic decomposition (breaks down with air) which creates heat. It needs garden materials as well as food scraps.

Composting suits if you:

  • have garden materials (you need twice as much as your food scraps).
  • have space on bare earth to put the compost bin.
  • are in a household with more than two people.

The benefits are:

  • you can add a greater variety of food and other materials than in a wormfarm including garlic, onion and citrus.
  • you can recycle your garden materials.
  • you can add larger volumes of materials.



Wormfarming works by worms and other micro-organisms eating the food, you don’t need to add garden materials.

Wormfarming suits if you:

  • don't have any garden materials to get rid of.
  • don't have access to any bare earth.
  • have a small household or you don’t produce a lot of food scraps.

The benefits are:

  • you can collect the liquid and solid fertilisers from your wormfarm.
  • you can keep your wormfarm in a courtyard, on a balcony or even inside.
  • you don’t need to add garden materials.



Bokashi fermentation breaks down food waste, including meat, dairy, bread, and small bones, into a readily decomposable form. Anaerobic bacteria ferment the scraps in a sealed bin, minimising insects and odour. It's great for both homes or apartments, and especially for small households where space is limited.

Bokashi suits if you:

  • live in a house or apartment, or work in an office with a kitchen
  • have somewhere to bury the fermented semi-solid matter (patch or large pot of soil, compost bin, or community garden)
  • would also like to compost meat, dairy, bread, and small bones

The benefits are:

  • it's compact and sealed, so can be used indoors or outdoors
  • it can handle meat, dairy, bread, small bones, citrus, onion, and most other food scraps
  • it produces nitrogen-rich liquid and semi-solid fertiliser that, when diluted, are great for a garden and pot plants
