Protecting Auckland's environment
The best of both worlds - compost and food scraps
While home composting is still the preferred option to treat food scraps, not all Aucklanders can compost and not all food scraps can be easily composted. Auckland Council’s food scraps collection service means that food scraps, which would end up in landfill where they create harmful greenhouse gases, will now be used for renewable energy and fertiliser to grow more food sustainably.
