Mr RANDALL (1:52 PM) —I would like to bring to the attention of the House an innovative business in the electorate of Canning called Custom Composts, off Lakes Road in the Peel region. This business has recently received a $361,000 government grant from the government’s Commercial Ready program. Custom Composts is a very innovative business. It has taken what is deemed to be a real problem—that is, the huge amount of pig manure generated by the Weston’s minimum disease piggery at the same location—and pelletised it so that it is now a very useful product, a soil improver. It is pelletised much like Dynamic Lifter, but it does not have the smell.

For those looking for an environmentally friendly solution to the fertilising of their crops or even their gardens, I recommend Custom Composts. It is an innovative company that you might want to look at closely. It is not only dealing with a waste problem but also turning it into something very friendly and usable for all Australians. I suggest that it is a product that we will hear a lot more about in the future. I congratulate Custom Composts on finding a solution to what could be a very smelly waste product problem.
