Here’s the gist
- Paid ‘Swap and Go’ compost service available for residents of Miami and Burleigh
- Some community gardens accept food scrap drop-off
Gold Coast Council has no residential food scrap pick-up service as part of its regular waste collection services.
Local business Seed the Ground runs a food waste subscription service for residents in Miami and Burleigh called Swap and Go. For $4.50 a week subscribers receive a compost caddy which can be swapped out at a local Swap Station.
Subscribers can also pick up bags of compost from their Swap Station once a month.
Gold Coast Council maintains a list of local community gardens, each with their own evolving food scrap drop-off policy. Try contacting your local garden about their latest policy.
