Learn about Bokashi - Bokashi - image1 - Bokashi bucketAs part of our initiative to further reduce waste going to landfill, the Bokashi Bucket is a form of composting that converts your kitchen waste into gardener's gold and is available to residents of the Kiama Municipality.

The Bokashi Bucket is a practical and convenient alternative for transforming kitchen waste into a nutrient rich soil conditioner. This unique composting system uses the revolutionary EM (Effective Micro-Organism) Bokashi to create the ideal conditions for airtight (anaerobic) composting.

You can compost almost every kitchen food waste in your Bokashi Bucket including fruit and vegetables, prepared foods, cooked and uncooked meats and fish, cheese, eggs, bread, coffee grinds, tea bags, wilted flowers, tissues - even dog waste!!
