Residential Composting Services

We provide your family with a 5-gallon bucket and then, depending on the number of people in your household, pick up the food scraps weekly or biweekly and take them to a commercial compost site. We leave a clean bucket for you to continue your compostables collection for the next pickup. Learn more and see if you are in our compost pickup service area.

Commercial Composting Services

We tailor our compost pickup service to create a program that works for each customer. Most customers are on a weekly pickup, but some are twice a week. With each pickup we deliver clean, lined, kitchen-ready totes, so it is easy for your kitchen staff to start the collection again. Our goal is to make it easy for your business to reduce what it sends to the landfill.

Zero Waste Events

Our personalized service sets us apart from other ​food scrap haulers. We offer zero waste consulting, compost education, as well as event staffing. Our dedicated Zero Waste Consultants can help you manage the waste stream at any event, large or small. We ensure the proper disposal of your food scraps, as well as all other waste, including recyclables.

Compost Communally with Neighbor Totes™

Share a compost tote with your neighbors or at your faith community. Each tote accommodates food scraps for up to 24 people in a week. We’re better together!
