About Us

At the heart of Western Composting Technology (WCT) is the Geelong-based Dickens family, known for delivering practical, innovative solutions for waste resource management to more than 2,000 commercial and government clients. In 2004, the family established WCT to compete for the Greater Shepparton City Council’s tender to build, own and operate the first alternative waste treatment facility in Victoria to accept and process garden waste from kerbside collections and transfer stations in the municipality. Construction of our flagship Shepparton composting plant was completed in October 2008. Our Shepparton team now collects and recycles green waste, garden waste and commercial food waste into usable compost products.

Using Horstmann-WTT tunnel composting technology from Germany, the initial decomposition and pasteurisation of feedstock takes place in closed tunnels. What takes six to 12 weeks in open windrows takes two weeks in our facility. We then sell the high-quality end product to wholesalers to blend with. WCT composts and mulches have been specifically developed for use in the urban amenity, intensive agriculture and rehabilitation market sectors. WCT products meet the general requirements of Australian Standard AS4454-2012: Composts, soil conditioners and mulches.
