    FOOD SCRAP RECYCLING PROGRAM

    We'll supply you with a 5-gallon bucket, compostable liner, and airtight lid. Each week we'll collect your compostable food waste right from your doorstep and leave you a clean, freshly lined bucket with every pickup. Let us take the work out of composting!

    The EPA estimates that more food reaches landfills and incinerators than any other single material, with food and organics making up 30% of our waste stream. When we throw food in the trash, we’re throwing away much more than food. Wasted food wastes the water, energy, labor, land, and fertilizers used to grow that food initially. If not handled carefully, these leftovers can add billions of tons of greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere. Reducing food waste is one of the most impactful ways that average consumers can help fight climate change.

     

    When you choose to recycle food waste, you divert food scraps from being wasted and turn them into something useful for our community and environment instead. We'll collect your food scraps and transfer them to one of our local community partners, who then turn it into nutrient-rich compost.

     

    As a member, you can have finished compost that you helped create delivered back to you, twice annually.

    We make the process of composting easy, so you can take pride knowing you're doing the right thing for your family, community, and planet!
