Household Collection and Composting of Kitchen and Garden Waste


In 2013 we are expanding our business into residential collections beginning in Cape Town’s Southern Suburbs (Harfield Village, Claremont and Rondebosch). We aim to provide an easy way for home owners to recycle all organic waste through a simple bucket and bag collection system. All kitchen scraps including vegetable and fruit peelings, egg shells, tea bags, coffee grounds, meat, bones, paper towel, plate scrapings, bread and dairy products can be placed in the kitchen buckets for collection. Garden waste for example weeds, soft plant cuttings, leaves and grass clippings can all be placed in clear plastic bags for collection and composting.

How to compost with ZTL Organics

Thank you for joining us in helping to see organic waste turned into compost instead of ending up in the landfill. Here are 8 quick easy steps on how to separate your food and garden waste for us to collect and compost.

1. Sign up and pay for the composting service with your contact details and address.

2. Purchase one kitchen bucket and one 25 litre collection bucket.

3. Line both buckets with a sheet of newspaper and begin collecting food waste scraps in the kitchen bucket.

4. Place tea bags, coffee grounds, fruit and vegetable peels, egg shells, old bread, dairy products, meat, bones, plate scrapings and paper tissues and serviettes into the kitchen bucket.

5. Once the bucket is full or preferably daily, empty the kitchen bucket into the collection bucket. If you are concerned about odours place a layer of sawdust over the food waste in the collection bucket.

6. Rinse out the kitchen bucket with boiling water and wipe down. Baking soda and vinegar mixed in equal parts makes an excellent natural cleaner for keeping the kitchen bucket odour free. Line  the bucket with a new piece of newspaper and fill again. Your kitchen bucket can be kept under the sink or in a convenient spot for easy filling. Make sure the lid is replaced tightly to avoid attracting insects.

7. On collection day (usually Tuesdays) swap your full 25 litre bucket for an empty one and have up to three bags of garden waste collected.

8. Start collecting food waste again.

Garden Waste

We accept soft cuttings, grass cuttings, leaves and weeds properly bagged. No tree stumps or large branches, bricks stones or plastic is to be placed in the bags. Up to three bags of garden waste will be accepted per week. If you have larger amounts of garden waste, please schedule a once off collection.
