        I'm assuming they are manually checking addresses to make sure they are within the council boundaries, given the wording of the order confirmation:

        Your order is now awaiting approval by the City of Melbourne. This usually takes less than a week. Your order will be approved so long as your address is inside the City of Melbourne area.

    Thanks OP

    Just got the discount on the vader bin so far with the "aerator addon" The other bins don't apply a discount, not sure if I'll get it as 500 people have already looked into the 300 only spot.
    The worm option is also giving the first "the farm" and free 1000 worms, anything else needs money.
    Bokashi only gives you a bin, no free enzyme or smasher

    Allocation all exhausted already?

  •  

    It's not free, the council pays for it from the rates you pay them.

  •  

    I guess they're trying to make up for the amount of recyclable material going to landfill at the moment. Wish I was in Victoria to jump on it!

      As a bit of diy in case you miss the deal.

      I cut the bottom off a bucket (the big white pale buckets you can get from bunnings) and drilled a heap of holes in the side. I buried it up to the lid and put vegetable scraps in it.

      Earthworms will come in through the holes and feast. Best part of this method is that you don't need to worry about temperature or ensuring that you have food scraps (two reasons why my worm farms had failed in the past), they'll go deeper /shallower /elsewhere if there are any issues and they'll come back once you start dumping scraps in there again. Been working for about 4 years now.

        Good diy idea. I purchased the little Aussie Composter at $35 each!

      •  

        To those interested in trying this, don't forget the lid or you will have made a pit trap. I used to remove illegal traps for work and it was never fun when there was a dead blue-tongued lizard, things got exciting if there was a snake in there though.

        I got couple of in my backyard and it works well
        Any other creative idea like this pls share it

  •  

    Just curious if its safe to have a worm farm in my bedroom! #1roomLife #allinoneroom

  •  

    Just got my order approved. Next step shipment apparently.

    Thank you for your recent order through the Compost Revolution.

    Unfortunately your order of one Urban Composter Bokashi bin has NOT been approved by City of Melbourne.

    Was worth a shot lol
