Living earth compost facility

For over 20 years we've crafted our amazing compost and helped recycle well over a million tonnes of New Zealand’s organic waste! That's a lot of great gardens, healthy crops and exciting city green areas that Living Earth has helped to grow. Waste Management, NZ's largest waste recovery company, is proud to own Living Earth, NZ's largest organic waste to composting operation, as part of its commitment to efficient waste processing in NZ.

Our passion for composting has led us to the beautiful city of Christchurch, as well as the City of Sails. In 2009 the first household organics collection kicked off in Christchurch, from Christchurch homes to the Organic Processing Plant in Bromley. That’s delivering rich nutrient filled compost to the Canterbury farmers and now it's being used in local gardens and in the centre of Christchurch to aid stormwater management as the city rebuilds.
