How It Works

1. YOU FILL YOUR BUCKET

As part of your residential pick-up service, we provide you with a five gallon container into which you deposit your food waste and other compostable waste. Place the container anywhere inside or outside of your house and fill it with compostable waste.

You’ll be surprised at all the waste that we accept. Click here for a full list of what GOES and DOESN’T GO in the bucket.

2. YOU PUT IT OUTSIDE

We work together with you to pick an outdoor location where your bucket will be left once a week on a predetermined pickup day.

3. WE PICK IT UP

On a predetermined pickup day, we pick up your bucket and take it to The Compost Company so they can make compost.  We leave you with an empty, clean bucket to fill for the next week.

4. WE BRING YOU COMPOST!

Twice a year you will receive complimentary compost, once in early Spring and then again in early Fall, to use for your personal garden! Don’t have a personal garden? No worries! We will donate your earned compost to a locally owned and operated farm, organization or community garden.
