Compost to combat climate change

Let's Talk Compost

Composting is the cornerstone of building healthy, nutrient-rich soil. By diverting food scraps from landfill and turning it into nutrient-dense compost, we not only reduce waste but also enrich our soil.  Join us in this transformative journey toward stronger, more fertile soil that fosters healthier plant life, sequesters carbon, and contributes to a more sustainable and resilient ecosystem.

Community Compost Hubs

Compost with us and drop off your food scraps at our hub.

Don't have the space, but want to compost? Join our hub below that's closest to you and you'll receive all the details. We are regularly on-site or you can contact Judith at [email protected].

We run two hubs, Kaipātiki and Hobsonville Community Compost Hub.

  • We take bokashied food scraps and offer free composting workshops through Compost Collective.
  • Bokashi food scraps can be dropped off anytime into our drop-off bin by people who signed up with us.
  • The bins are regularly emptied into the composters.

Take a look at our video playlist to get some insights into how and why we compost at the hub.

The Compost Collective is a collaboration between Kaipātiki Project and EcoMatters Environment Trust enabled by the Auckland Council funding.

With the help of a team of keen composting tutors, we offer FREE home composting courses about worm farming, bokashi buckets & traditional composting bins, all around Auckland.

The courses encourage people to minimise their waste and turn their food scraps into living compost for the garden. Discounts on a composting system that best suits your needs are up for grabs!

Collectively, we make a difference

In Auckland, 50% of our household rubbish is organic waste, such as food scraps and garden waste. This means that over 120,000 tonnes of organic waste gets sent into landfill each year where it remains forever. Join a free course, start composting and turn these startling statistics around! 


We thank our funders and partners!
