Our Northern Rivers Compost is magic for your garden
Thursday, 24 January 2019
At the Lismore Recycling & Recovery Centre we are closing the loop on our organics recycling, turning the region's food and garden scraps into a nutrient-rich compost for local farms and backyard gardens.
Once the contents from kerbside organics bins are brought to our facility, the material is stockpiled into rows on the composting pad. Food and garden waste is shredded and then processed on an Aero-sorb system, which pushes air through the material, speeding up the composting process and keeping it in an aerobic state. Heat and micor-organisms assist in the composting and killing off any pathogens and weed seeds.
The composted material is then graded and screened to remove plastics and other inorganic materials, and is tested for quality assurance before being released for sale.
Our compost can be purchased via the weighbridge at the Lismore Recycling & Recovery Centre from 7am to 3.45pm Monday to Friday, and from 9am-1pm Saturdays.
Standard trailer / dual cab ute ( half a cubic metre) : $25
Large Trailer / tray back ute ( full cuboc metre) : $50
15kg bag ( available via the Lismore Revolve Shop): $5
Bulk prices are available and delivery can be arranged. For more information phone 1300 87 83 87.
