Compost bin and worm farm rebate terms and conditions

The Rebate Program: 

  • Logan residents who purchase a compost bin, compost aerator, worm farm or Bokashi composting system on or after 1 July 2021 may apply for a rebate of up to $50 (one per residence only). 
  • The Rebate Program cannot be claimed for a compost bin, aerator, or worm farm purchased before 1 July 2021.
  • The Rebate Program is strictly limited to the purchase of a compost bin, compost aerator, worm farm or Bokashi composting system only. It cannot be claimed for the purchase of similar products including consumables like worms, carbon material, worm farm conditioner, Bokashi grains or compost accelerator.
  • The Rebate Program amount is capped at $50 per household. If a person spends an amount equal to or less than $50 on the purchase of a compost bin, compost aerator, worm farm or Bokashi composting system, then they will receive a rebate amount to the exact value of the purchase amount. If the purchase amount of the compost bin, compost aerator, worm farm or Bokashi composting system exceeds $50, the maximum rebate that a person can receive is $50.
  • Any additional costs or expenses incurred in connection with this Rebate Program, including for postage or delivery of goods are the responsibility of the person claiming the rebate.
