Our new compost facility

Overview

We have opened a new Mobile Aerated Floor (MAF) composting facility,  which will turn over 3,000 tonnes of garden waste a year into a high quality compos. It's what we like to call super food for your soil.

Until now, all garden waste taken to the Byron Resource Recovery Centre (BRRC) was chipped and then transported to a processing facility outside Byron Shire.

Our garden organics compost is pasteurised and meets the Australian Standard.

Council received funding from the NSW Government for this project. 

The MAF is located at the Byron Resource Recovery Centre at Myocum.

The compost is available for purchase for $30/cubic metre to members of the public, farmers and businesses.

The Mobile Aerated Floor (MAF) process

MAF technology, was developed in Germany and it aerates the compost through a system of pipes underneath the compost piles.

The MAF technology takes garden waste and turns it into beautiful, rich, compost in six to eight weeks which is half the amount of time it takes with conventional composting systems. This minimises energy and water use and maximises output per square meter of composting surface.
