Our Wormery Service...



With your onsite worm digester installed, you can process almost all of your food waste in an environmentally friendly way.  Wormeries are an excellent eco-friendly alternative to sending food waste to landfill, allowing you to recycle your waste at your premises.  Composting with worms, called vermicomposting, is one of the most efficient ways of producing fertile rich soil, known as worm cast.  Our Dendrobaena worms are just about the best natural composters there are.  Vermicomposting uses this species of earthworms to process organic waste into material possessing excellent chemical, physical and biological characteristics for improving plant growth and health.  During the vermicomposting process, organic matter is fully oxidised and stabilised and the nutrients are converted into forms which are readily available for plants.

The success or failure of a wormery depends on its management. Knowing what to put in and when to put it in is essential to success. With our partners we have been running commercial units very successfully since 2007 and have amassed a great deal of experience in managing the processes, ensuring legal requirements are met and monitoring performance.

Concept of worm digestion:


  • Processes biodegradable waste 

  • Uses livestock - Dendrobaena worms 

  • Allows waste to be handled on site 

  • Impacts on landfill costs 

  • Produces an organic growing media 

  • Complements other recycling initiatives 


We can offer packages that are:

Fully inclusive: We provide the unit, the worms, the collection bins and regularly visit the site and process the waste. We take FULL RESPONSIBILITY for all aspects and provide regular reports detailing volumes of waste processed for your records. All you have to do is provide the space, the waste streams (we will even collect the waste from kitchens and process it ) and some water and power. All this is provided for a regular monthly fee.


Sales only: We will sell you the unit, the worms and all necessary equipment and essentially provide TRAINING for an agreed period of time to ensure the unit is managed correctly. We can then offer regular health check visits and help line support for as long as you need it .

Consultation: We are available to give help, support and advice should you wish to setup your own Wormery unit or already have one. We can visit you and offer our advice or telephone and email support, whatever your need we would be more than happy to help.

A few other things to keep in mind:

The smaller the matter the easier and faster for the worms to compost.  Chopping large chunks of food to feed worms is recommended but not necessary. You can puree, freeze, or microwave food scraps before adding them to your wormery to help break down material, however to maximise vermicomposting we use a large macerating device, this is a sort of large food processor that breaks the food up into very small pieces which the worms can can consume very quickly.

The amount and frequency of food you will want to feed your worms is also a factor you need to consider. This will depend on the amount of worms you have in your wormery. Keep in mind a worm will eat half its own body weight in waste a day. So, if you have 2 kilo of worms in your bin or composter you can technically feed them up to 1 kilo of waste a day. 

As you can see there's a lot to Vermicomposting - Make the whole process easier and contact us instead.
