How it works
Set your full bucket outside on Sunday so that it can be picked up between 9am and 5pm and replaced with a clean bucket.
Throughout the week, collect your food waste in your provided bucket(s). Refer to the list below to learn what you can and cannot compost!
Your food waste is taken to an area farm to be hand-mixed with wood chips, turned and watered (3-4 month process).
The finished compost is ready for that farm to use to enrich their soils!
"We don't produce enough compost to start our own bin, so it's nice to be able to make sure our scraps don't go to waste. The weekly pick up is great, and you can throw just about anything natural in there! And since we've stopped throwing stinky stuff in the garbage it goes out a lot less. We now produce less than one bag of garbage per week. Thanks for helping to save the planet!"
