Waste Away Digester

WormsThe ‘Waste Away Digester’ system is an easy to use system for recycling larger volumes of organic waste onsite. The ‘Waste Away Digester’ provides an ideal environment for soil friendly microorganisms & bacteria to soften food for compost worms. The worms turn organic waste to worm castings. The worm castings are collected in the base tray. To use: 1: 5 parts soil or potting mix.

Liquid worm tea drains into a tank.
To use: 1 – 5 parts water. The worm tea can be used on most plants and trees or sold as a concentrated soil & plant nutrient. Can make 15 + litres per week.

Worms used are Tiger and Blue worms.

Worms consume up to their body
weight in organic waste per day.
