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 up your scraps with my bike and leave you a clean new bucket.
5. I mix in some carbon aka”“browns”” to keep the pile balanced and lovely. Turning it as needed to bring in oxygen so the microbes can breathe.
6. Once ready, I give you a 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!). As a C’sC member, you’re entitled to one bucket of compost a year free but if you want more, you’ll have to work for it at one of our Neighborhood Compost Fiestas.
What goes into the bucket? Well, most 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 and yogurt are OK…not milk!) so please keep them separate.
The cost? 10 dollars per month. Yep. That’s right. Just 10 bucks for weekly bike-powered pick-ups.
We also offer a drop-off service where you can bring your kitchen scraps to Carter’s Compost World HQ here on Washington Street for just 5 dollars/month.
We also have a few other services.
