Making It Easy
The ‘Easy’ in Easy Earth reflects our belief that people will do the right thing for the environment when it isn’t too hard. The hardest thing you need to do is separate your compostable waste from your general rubbish. This will hopefully significantly reduce your landfill waste collection needs, and therefore cost.
Who We Are
Easy Earth is the ‘5th child’ of Whanganui locals, Derek and Sarah Pickering. We have been supported by Whanganui District Council and South Taranaki District Council through their Waste Minimisation Funds.
Our machine is known as a HotRot and is supplied by a New Zealand-based business who design, build, install and commission integrated Organic Waste Treatment Plants. The company has installed its proprietary HotRot in-vessel composting systems in more than 11 countries since its inception in 2003.
Composting is a biological process that occurs naturally through bacteria growth and tissue decay. We are using the HotRot system to provide the best conditions for these natural processes to happen and creating nutrient rich and weed-free compost, without causing methane emissions and leachate which are common in most alternative composting systems.
