Award winning compost bins

Our award winning compost bins are light and easy to use. When used with an ergonomically designed Reln Garden Aerator or Compost Maker, you’ll find mixing your compost is absolutely effortless.

Effortless tumbling compost bins

Compost Tumblers have been designed to do all the composting work for you. Simply fill the tumble bin and turn the unit on its axle every two days to mix and aerate your compost. The sturdy steel bar that runs through the middle of the tumbler evenly breaks up heavy clumps of organic waste as it decomposes.

Sleek, fun and funky worm farms

We’ve designed a range of worm farms to suit different households and different needs, all with a unique design to maximize your worm farm’s efficiency and ease of use. Choose from a Can-O-Worms® which is especially designed for children, a Worm Café®, designed for use in your home or on the balcony, or the original Worm Factory® for keen gardeners!

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 fertilizer to feed our earth.
