KaiCycle putting the cycle into food recycling

 

Citizen loves KaiCycle – a Wellington based social enterprise that addresses the lack of organic waste recycling options for Wellington residents and businesses.

Sign up with KaiCycle and they will collect your food waste and scraps from your door on their Electric Bike with Custom built trailer!

KaiCycle then compost the waste at the WorkerBe urban not-for-profit farm where they grow fruit and vegetables that are then donated to charity or sold to local Wellington businesses.  The farm is currently growing half a tonne of produce and hopes to expand their output to one and a half tonnes.

Such a simple but brilliant idea, especially when organic waste makes up approximately 30% of curbside waste.

Listen to a recent Radio New Zealand feature on KaiCycle or visit KaiCycle’s Facebook page.
