Do's & Dont's

Everything we collect goes to a commercial composting facility. This means you can compost MORE than you could traditionally on your own in your backyard. The best part about it:  It's all recycled back into nature :-) and not added to the landfill contributing to harmful methane emissions.


Our compost pick-up program accepts the following items:

  • Food Waste (anything that used to be alive): produce (fruits, vegetables), meat, dairy, breads, etc.
  • Coffee/Tea Grounds & Filters
  • Spoiled food

What is a compost and why it matters

Compost is created by:

  • Combining organic wastes, such as wasted food, yard trimmings, and manures, in the right ratios into piles, rows, or vessels.
  • Adding bulking agents such as wood chips, as necessary to accelerate the breakdown of organic materials; and
  • Allowing the finished material to fully stabilize and mature through a curing process.


Gardeners and farmers add compost to soil to improve its physical  properties. They may even use compost instead of soil to grow plants.  Mature compost is a stable material with a content called humus that is dark brown or black and has a soil-like, earthy smell.
