Food waste is wasted when gone to landfill. It's energy and nutrients lost to us.

And as any gardener knows, compost is great for the garden, boosting soil organic carbon and providing all the nutrients plants require. 

The environmental benefits of using compost are also well established. Composted gardens have reduced need for inorganic fertilisers, minimising potential of eutrophication of local waterways.

The use of compost also promotes carbon storage within the soil, important for climate change mitigation.

Food waste in landfill decomposing under anaerobic conditions promotes methane generation which is a more potent greenhouse gas; more impactful on our climate than the aerobic processes involved with composting food waste.

We therefore propose a FOGO (Food Or Organic) waste system for the City of Kalamunda as other local governments have successfully put in place, where food waste goes to composting rather than landfill.

This compost to then be cheaply available for Kalamunda residents, enabling us to put our waste back to use for the benefit of our local environment.
