Avoid food scraps and food waste from going to landfill with this easy outdoor compost system.

The Subpod is an award winning Australian home compost system that turns your food waste into rich soil faster while creating the perfect base for plants and herbs around. The underground perforation system allows worms to move between your food waste and the surrounding soil freely while aerating your compost naturally. The insulated above-ground section ensures perfect aeration while keeping the system odourless and pest-free. It even functions as a garden seat.

We were customers long before we started selling the SubPod and can’t sing its praises enough. We’ve reduce our weekly general waste by 60-80% while also nourishing our garden.

What can go in? Almost everything. Even your hair and clothes( as long as it comes from natural fibres). See full list of compostable items below.

Add the Aerator: this stainless steel garden tool speeds up the composting as it helps distribute oxygen and moisture without getting your hands dirty. It mixes up fresh and finished compost 

Add the garden bed: No garden bed at home or office? Don’t worry, SubPod have you covered too. This bundle includes a zinc-coated aluminium garden bed which will fit into most garden spaces. It is 45 cm deep so plenty of room for your plants. The aerator is also included, making sure you can quickly and easily maintain your SubPod system.

How to Assemble your Subpod:


What can I compost in Subpod?

You can compost a much bigger variety of materials in Subpod than in other worm farm systems! See the full list below:

1. Foodwaste -  Most food waste can be composted in Subpod without worry. Fruit and vegetable scraps, eggshells (crush them first), coffee grounds, used tea leaves, spoiled plant-based milks, grains, pastas, breads, nuts (and their shells), seeds, pits, husks and so on. Small amounts of meat, seafood, dairy foods, citrus, onion and garlic may also be added. Subpod can also process spicy herbs, peppers and oils but it’s best to introduce these slowly in small amounts at first, and only once your worms are fully established (after around three months).

2. Paper & Card - Most scrap paper and cardboard can be added to Subpod, as long as it’s not laminated or super glossy. Again, the smaller the pieces, the better. Junk mail, office paper, bills, envelopes (no plastic windows), post-it notes. Paper plates, tissues, egg cartons, paper cupcake liners, baking paper, even card and paper packaging is fine.

3. Natural Fibres - Cotton wool balls and pads, tampons, toilet paper cores and even natural latex condoms and gloves can go into Subpod. Old clothing, face washers, napkins, tablecloths and very old towels can be used as long as they are made from natural fibres like cotton, tencel, linen, hemp or wool (no polyester, nylon, acrylic or blends) – just shred them into small pieces first. Washer and dryer lint is okay too, as long as it comes only from clothing made from natural fibres.

4. Wood & Bamboo - Sawdust (no paint) is great. Toothpicks, disposable wood, bamboo and bioplastic cutlery and crockery can be composted, along with dead matches, bamboo skewers, garden prunings (cut 'em up small), and charcoal from the fireplace – as long as you wash off the ash which is too alkaline for Subpod.

5. Human and animal waste  - Human hair and nail trimmings, used facial tissue, used cotton bandages and sanitary items can all be composted in Subpod, as long as they are made from 100% natural fibres. Pet hair of all kinds is fine, along with soiled newspaper and hay cage liners and faeces from vegetarian pets and livestock (rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, cows and horses). Dog and cat faeces are NOT suitable for Subpod if you’re eating the plants growing around it. But fine if you want to have a separate one for this purpose.

What can’t go in the SubPod?

You cannot compost non-organics such as plastic, tin cans, cigarettes, building waste, toxic waste, glass, or any other similar materials in Subpod.

    Excellent and prompt customer service. I received my order really quickly but had a few questions in regards to my order. Lauren kindly replied within hours of me sending an enquiry. Highly recommend and will definitely by again.

    No more nasties, only Australian goodness!
