Here’s how it works:
1. I give you a bucket.
2. You fill it with your kitchen scraps.
3. A week later I pick it up with my bike and leave you a new, clean bucket.
4. I dump your organic waste into my backyard pile, mix in some “browns” and turn as needed.
5. Once ready, I will give you back one 30 pound five-gallon bucket full of our (your!) 100% awesome, locally grown compost so that you can use it in your garden to grow yummy veggies (or pretty flowers!). You get 1 bucket of compost a year free but if you want to work for it, shovel/screen it yourself at one of our biannual Neighborfood Compost Fiestas.
What goes into the bucket? Well, everything that grows is OK.
“If is grows, it goes!”
You can put everything from the kitchen into the bucket (fruit and
vegetable scraps, non-greasy food scraps like rice, pasta, bread,
cereal etc., coffee grounds & filters, tea bags (staples OK), egg and
nut shells, pits.
Please NO meat, bones, chicken, fish, greasy food scraps, fat, oil, dairy, animal waste, litter or bedding, coal or charcoal, coconuts, yard waste.
My chickens will eat your bad dairy (cheeses, yogurt…not milk!) so please keep that separate.
The cost? 5 dollars per month. Yep. That’s right. Just 5 bucks for bike powered weekly pick ups.
We also offer a drop-off service where you can bring your kitchen scraps to my house on Washington Street for 5 dollars/month.
