Worm Farms and Compost Bins in the Uralla Shire Council area 

 A fun way to reduce your waste is to feed your food scraps to a worm farm or combine your food and garden waste together and place them in a compost bin. Your food scraps and garden waste can be turned into great compost - for your garden and pot plants.
