It’s that time of year again here in Northern Michigan. And although we’d much rather be riding our bikes, we’re looking forward to harvesting some leaves this fall.

We are nothing without our leaves or “browns”. They are an integral part of our C’sC recipe.

Neighborhood Kitchen Scraps + Neighborhood Leaves = Neighborhood Compost.

For every bucket of kitchen scraps or “greens” we dump into the pile, we add 3 buckets of leaves. Leaves that we get from our neighborhood maple trees. They’re free. They’re local. They’re delicious and nutritious.

We pick-up a lot of buckets so we need a lot of leaves! Our #Leaves4Carter program invites our TC neighbors to help by bagging/delivering some leaves to Carter’s Compost World HQ. Please no grass or other yard waste.

Email us at with questions.

Thank you for supporting bike-powered community composting and helping to green our Traverse City!

  1. Wow. What a great website to go along with a wonderful project. I will certainly drop some of the leaves from my two very productive maples at Hdqs. Congratulations, Carter!!!!
