the benefits of composting

Plant health, plant productivity, and soil health have shown to improve when compost is applied. Benefits are long lasting with studies showing organic matter still present in the soil five years after application!

Compost can improve water retention and infiltration in soil. This means saving you time and money when it comes to watering your garden or yard and preventing runoff and soil erosion.

Composting diverts organic materials such as food waste from entering the landfill. In the landfill organic materials are subjected to an anaerobic environment (lack of oxygen) where they release methane, a more potent greenhouse gas than CO2.

How our residential pick-up services work:
  1. Sign up by choosing one of our plans below. You can choose one, two or three buckets for your weekly service.

  2. We will drop off your five gallon bucket following your instructions, within 1-6 days, typically on the next regularly scheduled pick-up day. You will receive a Welcome and on boarding series of emails and a printed Welcome Packet (which can be composted when done).

  3. Put approved compostable items in your bucket all week long. Check out our "Can and No Can" list.

  4. On your pick-up day you will get a reminder text to put your bucket out by 9am. Your bucket will be picked up between 9am and 5pm.

  5. When we pick-up your bucket we will swap it and leave you a clean one.

  6. After six months, be on the look out for an email that lets you know you can now request compost to be delivered to your door each quarter.
