Making Dirt For Mother Earth

Participate in compost pickups and return food scraps and other organic material to the soil to be reused.  You can compost much more with us than a backyard pile, like pizza boxes, bones, napkins, cheese, lobster shells, etc.

We Make It As Easy As 1, 2, 3

1.  Line your 13 gallon animal proof curbside bin or a kitchen countertop container and fill it with food scraps, napkins, paper towels, pizza boxes and more. Here's the full list of what's compostable.

2.  We swing by once a week and empty your bin. We'll also drop off compostable bags ordered through your customer login.


3.  Get Compost in the Spring. You will receive a voucher for a bag of finished compost, redeemable at participating Garden Centers or you can donate your compost to Backyard Growers.
