On May 1st, 2022, Collective Resource Compost entered into a franchise agreement with the City of Park Ridge to make composting more accessible.
This agreement lowers the cost of our service as reflected in these prices: Weekly Basic Bucket service is $27 and biweekly service (every other week) is $20.50 per month. You can save with annual or quarterly payments.
You may have noticed that we’ve added the option of a more frequent weekly swapout.
You could use our 5-gallon buckets to divert the food scraps from your individual household or compost communally with friends, relatives or neighbors using our 32-gallon Neighbor Totes. Restaurants, organizations, schools, and businesses are encouraged to divert their food scraps too.
All of this info can be found here on our website.
We’ve had a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Park Ridge and have enjoyed helping the city meet its sustainability goals. In 2017, Go Green Park Ridge (GGPR), under the leadership of Amy Bartucci, worked with us to get enough customers so we could expand our service area to include Park Ridge. We’ve spoken at Green Drinks, tabled with GGPR at the farmers market and Community Health Fair and tabled at several One Earth Film Festival events.
We’re excited to be deepening our relationship to Park Ridge.
