Established in November 2008, the Dulverton Organics Compost Facility is the largest composting facility in Tasmania, accepting approximately 40,000 tonnes of organic material per annum from suppliers across the state.
Organic material including garden green waste, supermarket organic waste, woodchips, by-products from the processing of animals, fish, dairy and vegetables, animal straw and manure, and biosolids are delivered to the site
The screened, nutrient-rich compost is now ready to use. Compost is weed and pathogen free, granular and easy to spread with a dry weight of approximately 700kg/m3.
Transforming the way we make compost
Dulverton Waste Management has commenced a project to upgrade our composting facility and provide best practice leachate and odour control.
In February 2020, a Development Permit Application was approved by Kentish Council to construct an industrial compost cover and associated mechanical equipment to better manage aeration and moisture of the existing compost windrow operation.
