What We Do
A Quick Rundown
City to farm:
Links businesses with local farms to divert food scraps from landfill to beneficial reuse.
Shows businesses how to properly pre-treat their food scraps for collection.
Transports the pre-treated food from businesses in special storage containers to a local farm.
Promotes businesses that participate in the programme as “Doing the Right Thing”
Promotes those businesses participating in C2F to our “Zero Waste Zero Carbon in Schools” programme
What that looks like:
C2F collects commercial food scraps in a box truck with a tail lift using a range of containers appropriate to the type and amount of food scraps generated. A bokashi compost system is used in the containers which are transported to a local farm.
Bokashi inoculant fermented the food scraps, pickling them to minimise odours and maximise rapid breakdown into topsoil.
120L Henkel bin for high nitrogen food scraps like meat, dairy, fish or soybean
140L Wheelie bins for lightweight produce
80-100L Wheelie bins for heavier food scraps
15L Buckets for small amounts of food scraps and coffee grounds
