Brisbane City Council has partnered with a number of community gardens around Brisbane to help residents turn food scraps into nutrients for soil.
Food waste is a big part of avoidable waste that goes into Brisbane’s general household bins. Composting helps to reduce the amount of food waste we send to landfill, while also reducing the harmful greenhouse gases that are released. It’s also an easy way to experience where our food comes from and shows how valuable our food scraps can be in the cultivation and harvesting cycle.
Brisbane’s Community composting hub program encourages residents living near a hub to regularly contribute their food scraps. With support from Council and community volunteer caretakers, residents can learn about the benefits of composting and other ways to reduce the amount of food waste they create.
This dataset utilises Brisbane City Council's Open Spatial Data website to provide additional features for viewing and downloading the data.
The first resource is in HTML format. The GO TO button will launch our Open Spatial Data website and this will let you preview the data and enable additional download options. The resources labelled GeoJSON, KML and SHP will give you a download of the entire dataset. The ArcGIS GeoServices REST API resource connects to metadata for the layer while the CSV resource will download attribute data in a table.
