DON’T be alarmed if green royalty stops you in the street. They only want to talk about worms.
The initiative is part of a council program to encourage residents to recycle their organic matter, whether that be through composting, worm farms or backyard chooks.
Council’s Waste Education Project Officer Esther Landells said while Highland residents were good recyclers, we could improve when it came to organic matter.
“In a recent audit of garbage in the shire, we found that 60 per cent of material in the red bins could be recycled – mainly food scraps and the like.
“By recycling this organic matter, not only will this give you more space in the your red bin, but you will also help to cut down on the methane gas that organic matter produces,” she said.
The royal couple is encouraging people to attend upcoming information sessions on waste recycling, with the added incentive of a free compost bin or worm farm (including worms) for attendees.
The information sessions will be held at the Resource Recovery Centre next week: Monday, August 3, Tuesday, August 4 and Thursday ,August 6 between 3.30pm and 5.30pm (each session is half an hour) and also on Saturday, August 11 between 11am to 12.30pm.

The King and Queen of Green come from Wollongong’s Eaton Gorge Theatre Company, which specialises in spreading environmental messages. They will be visiting Bowral in a couple of weeks and will also make an appearance at the Home and Garden Show.
