All The Details On Our Curbside Composting Service

Curious about composting but worried it’s too gross or smelly? Maybe you’re ready to stop sending your food scraps to the landfill but worried you don’t have the time for one. more. thing. right now?

No matter the reason, we’re here to help you compost. If fancy-pants composting is a thing, then we’re here for it. We provide curbside composting services to our neighbors in our local community and do our best to make it as easy and clean as possible.

We know composting might seem gross or dirty. But we also know it’s really freakin’ good for the planet. And because we call this planet home, composting is good for us too. That’s why we want to help you get in the composting groove and keep your food scraps out of the landfill.

Let us do the dirty work for you. We provide a collection bucket for your food scraps and free bucket liners for your bucket. We even clean your bucket every time we empty your food scraps to help reduce the “yuck” factor.

How It Works

Want to know how composting works? Here’s our primer. Tl;dr: Composting doesn’t stink (it actually smells kind of sweet), and it’s really good for the environment.

As for our curbside compost collection service, it’s a simple two-step.

Step 1: Fill your Swell Well, our fancy name for a five-gallon compost bucket, with compostable items. Not sure what you can compost? Check out the list of items we accept in your Swell Well!

Step 2: Leave your Swell Well out for us to empty on your scheduled day. We’ll collect the organic waste from your bucket and deliver it to our local composting partner facility.

And Repeat. Yep! It’s that easy.

Did we mention we give your bucket a quick swipe and clean each time we empty it? Pretty rad, right?

Bonus: Each spring, we offer customers up to 40 pounds of finished compost delivered to your home as part of your subscription! During this period, we also offer additional compost for sale for those who want more than 40 pounds.
