50% off Bokashi buckets

Want a convenient, easy and pretty much idiot-proof way to compost? Bokashi buckets and “zing” sawdust will help you get food waste out of your rubbish bin and turn it into a resource for your garden. Queenstown Lakes District Council will pay 50% of the start-up cost for Queenstown Lakes residents and rate-payers. So pop into Wanaka Wastebusters (or Shotover Garden Centre in Queenstown) and pick a starter kit up for $56. We’re open 9am-5pm every day.

For tips on how to use the Bokashi system, check out Dr Compost’s Youtube clip.

Welcome to Mr Manly

Big news!! We have a new Wastebusters cat. Mr Manly is 10 years old and Queenstown Cat Rescue  helped rehome him. He is doing a great job of keeping down rats and mice, who were making the most of our catless status. He’s also a master of cuddles and even enjoys getting his belly rubbed.

Mr Manly occasionally has to retire to the dress-up wardrobe for some quiet time. Otherwise he enjoys gentle cuddles with our visitors, and is settling in to his new life at Wastebusters very happily.
