Compost ROcks — the RO stands for Recycled Organics

9 September 2016

dirtgirlworld co-creator Cate McQuillen from the Clarence Valley has been awarded a $303,000 NSW Government grant for a project designed to motivate more families in NSW to 'get grubby' outside with recycled organics diverted from landfill.

This project is supported by the NSW EPA as part of Waste Less, Recycle More, funded from the waste levy.

Costa's Compost Academy has since been established to encourage householders to find multiple uses for compost.

The project includes the development of a toolkit for all local councils in NSW to distribute free through their environmental and sustainability education programs.

Ms McQuillen said, "we're aiming to show everyone how to turn their spoils into soils and we want everyone in our community to fall in love with compost, which is created from diverting organic waste from landfill, and use it to feed our gardens."

AORA are an official partner of Compost ROcks.
