With him is Mat Bly from Wallaceville. A new era of organic waste man- agement has begun at Upper Hutt City Council. A worm farm has been installed to compost organic kitchen waste from the council administration building. It will also serve as an edu- cational tool for library visitors. On Saturday the latest Healthy Homes, Happy Pockets event at Upper Hutt Central Library was attended by members of the public, local community groups, council staff and Upper Hutt Mayor Wayne Guppy. The two hour workshop Opening a can of worms, led by expert Dan the worm man Jones, taught attendees how to home-compost using a wormery, and how to build their own wormery cheaply out of old tyres, stackable containers or an old bathtub. The great thing about worm- eries is that you don t need a lot of room like a compost heap (some people even have them inside) and they reduce the volume of organic material in your rubbish. This helps reduce the smell of your rubbish and saves you money [less waste] while providing you with free compost for your garden! Who wouldn t want one? says council sustainability officer Roderick Boys. If you missed out on the work- shop, don t panic says Mr Boys. There is plenty of information available on our website, just go to upperhuttcity.com/wormery for instructions on how to build your own wormery. During the workshop, Mr Guppy poured the first worms into the new wormery, starting a new era of organic waste management at the council. The central library wormery will be used to compost all of Upper Hutt City Council s organic kitchen waste and will also serve as an ongoing educational tool for library visitors, says Mr Guppy. In addition, the recycled materials have been sourced from Earthlink, promoting material reuse, recycling, and composting in Upper Hutt. At the end of the workshop, one lucky attendee went home with a new wormery from Mitre 10 Mega Upper Hutt worth $119.
