Your Local Council

Working Together with Australian Councils

Tumbleweed is teaming up with local councils to promote social responsibility in communities through our Sustainability Program. Three Eco-packages have been developed so that all councils have the opportunity to get their residents involved in the War on Waste movement to recycle household organic waste at the source.

Sustainability and the environment

Did you know… Approximately 45% of household waste and 30% of all the waste Australians throw away is organic and compostable. Throwing organic waste, like food scraps and garden clippings, into the bin is harmful to the environment for more reasons than one: 


Valuable council resources are used to collect your waste and drop it into landfill.

Once it’s added to landfill, it decomposes and releases methane, a potent greenhouse gas... and this contributes to groundwater pollution as the acid liquid leachate is released.


It doesn’t need to be this way. Use a compost bin or worm farm in your home and you can compost your organic waste and turn it into nutritious fertiliser to feed our earth.

Why choose a Sustainability Program from Tumbleweed

Meaningful Change in helping reduce Co2, principally diversion of food waste from landfill is a Key sustainable goal for all Councils.

Tumbleweed has developed an innovative technological platform to help reduce food waste at the Source – “Home” via a series of unique online home Compost & Wormfarm Video tutorials utilising a well-known home gardening ambassador “Angus Stewart”

These videos feature interactive animated prompts to Q&A’s. We believe this will have the ability to reach thousands more community members to minimise foodwaste and maximise behaviour in Australian homes.

This is only part of the complement of Sustainable Programmes available from Tumbleweed where are products are 100% Australian sourced recycled plastic made in NSW– please see our available packages above.
