How it works

  • Discounted compost bucket collection service is available to the residents of Evanston, Morton Grove, Park Ridge, and Skokie.
  • A 5-gallon bucket will be delivered to the front porch of the service address within 15 days of payment received and matched to the service address. The first pickup will happen at a customer's chosen location 1 or 2 weeks later depending on the service level requested. An email reminder will be sent 36 hours before the pickup.
  • A fresh bucket will be left with every pickup that we receive the bucket that was given to the address prior. If the bucket is not out a call will be made to the phone number on record and a door hanger will be left, but no new bucket.
