Let's Compost Together...

Commercial Composting

Composting is an easy, effective way to add to the sustainability efforts of any restaurant, school, office, house of worship, or other institution. It diverts valuable resources from the landfill and demonstrates commitment to helping the environment. You can also lower your waste hauling costs by reducing the number of weekly landfill pickups.

Residential Composting Service

Our residential composting service provides door-to-door pickup of food scraps and other compostable matter. We provide a 5-gallon bucket to your family and then weekly or biweekly pick up the food scraps and take them to a commercial compost site. We leave a clean bucket for you to continue your collection for the next pickup. Most households work with some kind of countertop container and then empty into the big bucket when needed. Some customers choose to keep the bucket outside with a brick or flower pot on top, or it can be put out on your pickup day.

Neighbor Co-Op Program

It works the same way as the residential compost bucket swap, only in this case you share a bigger 35-gallon container with your neighbors or community. This is a great way to get to know your neighbors and to build community.  It is also a great opportunity for you to offset the cost of the service by splitting it among a group of like-minded people in your community.
