Composting just got easier.
Turn your food scraps into fertile compost instead of sending it to the landfill.

When you choose to pay-per-pickup, you may choose to pay for pickups one at a time or bundle your pickups to save money. You can create the schedule that works best for you and never pay for pickups you don’t need.
Compostables turn into compost.
Compost is the finished product.
Compost is organic matter that has been decomposed into a nutrient-rich substance that is added to soil. The process of composting breaks down your leftover foods and yard waste.

We allow for a 30-day full refund policy on all of our pickups with the exception of the Starter Bundle. However, you cannot be refunded for pickups that have been redeemed.
If you would like a refund on your Starter Bundle, you must contact us within 72 hours of purchase. If you have already received your bin and other starter items, we will retrieve them before the refund can be processed.
Currently, we are not available for same-day pickups. You must look at our schedule and request the next available date.
First, check your email to make sure you received your Pickup Request Approval email and double check the date requested.
Next, verify that you put your bin out the night before. Often times, we start pickups very early in the morning so if you put it out later in the morning, we might’ve missed it.
