You can divert 100% of your organic waste, including materials that worms can’t eat. This precious resource can be added back to our soil, so we can continue to grow plants, including food.

We have been using Collective Resource as our composting service for the past year. We only wish we had known about it earlier. Since we started composting our garbage has gone down to less than 1/2 bag a week. As children of the 60s, this makes us feel better about our place in the world.
Collective resource makes composting at home a breeze. Thanks to them and local recycling our household generates only a single weekly bag of trash. Service is top notch!
