Community Compost

Compost from the community,

for the community

Papakura has a weekly kerbside collection of household food scraps which are made into compost. This compost can be ordered and collected from the Beautification Trust free of charge for South and East Auckland communities to use in their home gardens, schools and community gardens.


Pick up is at 38 Holmes Road, Manurewa. Order online using the form below and our team will be in touch to arrange a contactless pick up time.

Special thanks to the Auckland Council Waste Solutions team for funding this project.
