Paecycle is a local service that collects household food scraps and turns them into compost for the community garden.
Food scraps are a precious resource we use to grow more food.
Currently, 28 percent of Kāpi ‘s kerbside rubbish collected is kitchen scraps. When added to landfill, these resources generate leachate and methane that contribute to environmental pollution and climate change.
Recycling your food scraps may also allow you to rent a smaller rubbish bin each month!
