We have some great options for you! Check out our recommendations below.

Our pet poo composting systems need soil access for installation. But, anything is paw-ssible! Have a friendly neighbour with a garden or live in a unit block with a shared garden? Have a chat with others about installing a shared pet poo composting system such as the EnsoPet Poo Composter. You can still add your food waste to other composting systems.

The Hungry Bin

The Hungry Bin is a high capacity, low-maintenance worm farm that is rodent and pest resistant - providing a simple experience for larger households. Once established, it recycles up to 2 litres of food scraps per day!

If you are looking to go zero waste, keep in mind that some types of food waste should only be added to your worm farm in small amounts.


  • Installation: Requires simple assembly

  • Use: Add your food scraps and worms will do the rest! Worm wee is collected through a continuous flow system while worm castings need to be harvested a few times a year. You will need to keep an eye on the conditions to keep your worms happy: Check out our worm farming tutorial for more information.


  • Australia-wide: $329.00 (RRP = $399.00)

Bokashi bins

These systems allow you to compost all food waste and hold 2-3 weeks of scraps for the average household. This then ferments for another week before being buried in your garden or added to a compost bin. The fermented food breaks down several times faster than unprocessed food making it an ideal no-fuss method of returning your food waste's valuable nutrient store to your garden.

As you don't have access to a garden with soil, make sure to check with a local community garden or ShareWaste to see if there are local composters that you can donate your scraps to.

Find our range of Bokashi bins on our product page.
