A champion receives food scraps from local contributors in the neighbourhood. Please read all the steps before filling out the registration form.

1. Fill out the registration form

See the bottom of this page for the 'Compost Hub registration form'.

2. Place your pin on the map

Go to the map at the bottom of this page and place your pin at your nearest crossroad. Make sure to include your preferred contact details including an email or phone number so you can be contacted.

3. Connect with your neighbours - use the flyers in the Document Library

You will need at least four (4) compost contributors to start your compost hub and receive a compost bin and kitchen caddies. Please note, four (4) compost contributors means four (4) people, not four (4) households, but not people from your own household.

4. Receive your compost bin and kitchen caddies

Once you have four (4) compost contributors, email the waste officer with the names and addresses of your contributors (ensure you and your contributors have completed a compost hub registration form before calling Council). You will be eligible to receive your free kitchen caddies (for your contributors) and compost bin (for Champions). Council provides this once and a maximum of four (4) kitchen caddies will be issued per compost champion. Email the Waste & Resources Project Officer at council@bmcc.nsw.gov.au

Then the contributors drop off their food scraps to the champion. If you would like to save food scraps from landfill but don’t want to compost, follow the steps below and become a contributor.

5. Update your pin on the map if you need more contributors or if you are full.
