How Does Residential Service Work?

Our residential service is super easy.

We bring you a clean container (Food Safe 5-gallon bucket) to place your food scraps in for the week.  Once a week, place your full bucket on your front porch and we will swap it with a fresh, clean bucket. You can place vegetables, cooked meat, and dairy scraps in the bucket. There is a comprehensive list of compostable materials on the bottom of this page.

How much does Residential Service cost?

$20/month for once weekly pick up of a 5 gallon bucket.  To register for service, please hit the Sign Up Now button below.

I signed up for Residential Service, when do I get my first bucket?

Our residential route runs on Fridays. You will get your first bin on the Friday following your signup. A welcome email with all the need-to-know info will be sent to you upon signup. Please check your spam folder.

Really?!?!  I can include cooked meat and dairy

Yes, really!  The stringent list of avoided items comes from the world of backyard composting. In our system, we have the equipment, size, training, and testing procedures required to handle these difficult materials. Please visit the bottom of this page for a comprehensive list of items that we accept in our system.

What about poop?

No.  We don't add any type of poop/manure to our compost. Please visit the bottom of this page for a comprehensive list of items that we accept in our system.

Do I get finished compost back?

Yes! We give compost to all of our residential customers. We are still scaling up, so volume is limited. We distribute finished compost in 1 cubic foot bags. For more information about this, please call or email us to talk compost!

How Does Commercial Service Work?

Commercial Service is tailored to meet your specific needs.

Our affordable service offerings are based on details such as the type of materials recovered, the staff training required, and the limitations of space and finances.

With that said, the standard workflow is weekly service of a 48-gallon wheeled tote. These totes are commercial grade and made for organics. We give you a clean container(s), you toss all your kitchen scraps in the container, and we swap it out with a fresh one once a week, or more frequently based on your needs.
