Composting in Amsterdam: The Worm Hotel

May 10, 2020 2 comments

In various neighborhoods in Amsterdam, you can bring your plant scraps to these community composting bins. The city sets them up, and they’re limited to a certain number of neighbors; all of whom are given the combination to the padlock to add to it. Although it looks like anyone could open the bottom to pull out the ready-to-use compost.

This one is near a park we bring the dogs too on weekend mornings, Saraphatipark. The city considers it full at 26 households using it.

The city seems to partner with Wormenhotel (worm hotel), which helps a number of cities in the Netherlands install and manage 108 of these things around the country.

No boats in the canals

Or at least there are no boats motoring around the canals. It’s one of the quarantine efforts in Amsterdam.
