Enjoy some tasty food, when you're done, put your food scraps in one of our bins or dumpsters



We'll pick up your food scraps in one of our shiny trucks and take it to one of our permitted compost facilities


We will mix your food scraps with wood chips, place it in large aerated piles, and let things compost for 4-6 weeks


After active composting is complete, we screen the compost, and then let it cure for 2-6 months as it keeps breaking down.

We end up with organic compost that's ready for your farm, garden, lawn or landscape
