‘Wasters’ at the Markets!
On most Sunday mornings you will find some of us ‘Wasters’ from the Waste Away group at the local Grey Lynn Farmers’ Market. We are there to talk about foodwaste, raise people’s awareness to think more about the food being thrown out and to encourage people to try ways to limit this waste.The group is also keen to promote the responsible practise of using worm farms or bokashi buckets, in your home and workplace, to divert foodwaste from landfill. The Wasters are experienced in using these systems and delight in sharing their passion with you to help you with a system that will work for you.
For all the information you may want for successful Bokashi composting please view the Bokashi NZ website: www.bokashi.co.nz or email: email@example.com we are happy to answer questions and help you with your foodwaste system.

HOUSEHOLD BATTERY COLLECTION
A reminder that the Waste Away group provides a Battery Collection Bucket at the Grey Lynn Farmers’ Market. Bring along your household alkaline, button, NiCad, rechargeable, lithium and “other” batteries. Just a warning that old lithium batteries have been known to spontaneously burst into flame, especially when they get a bit wet. So be careful about keeping them around the house.
Visit www.ecobatteries.co.nz for NiMH rechargeable batteries and chargers.
Battery Collection Bucket now at the Grey Lynn Farmers’ Market.

The Grey Lynn Waste Away group has had a major boost through its stall at the farmers market. 10 more Auckland households have become food waste composting converts.
Two teachers from Grey Lynn school have bought worm farms for their classrooms and have got plans to soon dispose of all of the school’s organic waste by using worm farms.
The Waste Away group is thrilled to help launch this project to reduce organic waste to landfill and create a healthier environment.
