If not, why not? Christchurch and the Queenstown Lakes District Council do. Which other councils subsidise bokashi bins and activator?

The Gisborne District Council also subsidise Bokashi's. You just have to use a special subsidy sticker that you get with your rubbish stickers. I got mine a month ago and its almost full - yeh!
You may want to check the following website www.createyourwoeneden.org.nz for questions/answers regarding Bokashi (composting and wormfarms too) and subsidised or free systems (Bokashi or one of the other options). I got one of the systems for free on the North Shore after attending a three hour long free course on composting systems and pledging to use the provided system. Some other areas of Auckland subsidise systems and I think a few other cities were mentioned on the website too. All in all I would say it was a worthwile activity and I am more than happy with my free wormfarm (I bought my Bokashi bin already 3 years ago).
Hi Silja, just in case there in any confusion there is a bit of a spelling mistake on the website....it should be http://www.createyourowneden.org.nz/ : )>

Dunedin City Coucil -Available at DCC Customer Service Agencies
Create Your Own Eden - www.createyourowneden.org.nz
- run composting worshops in Auckland area and attendees are offered a subsidy on a compost unit which includes Bokashi Systems.
Gisborne District Council- available from Customer Services Office.
Dunedin does as well. You just rock on up and ask for it.

Kiama (NSW Australia) council apparently subsidises bokashi bins now and Wollongong Council is considering it for the next financial year.... and Wollongong Council is busy running courses now teaching how to create your own bokashi bin cheaply and how to make your own bokashi bran.
