Compost is a sustainable product that provides many benefits to the soil, including:
• Increased soil organic matter and soil biodiversity
• Increased soil nutrient levels
• Increased water holding capacity (reducing watering requirements)
Compost in May features activities, events and publicity to improve awareness about using organic waste as a resource to produce compost. It is supported by the WA Waste Authority. The MRC and its member councils have a number of events and activities taking place at this time.
To find composting activities that are taking place near you either follow the Composting in May links either here on the MRC’s website (for activities being held in the MRC council areas) or log onto the WA Waste Authorities website www.wasteauthority.wa.gov.au (for activities taking place throughout Perth) .
