How does it work?


Here’s how it works:

1. We give you a bucket.

2. You start filling it with your kitchen scraps.

3. A week later, we’ll pick-up your scraps with our bike trailers and leave you a clean bucket.

4. We dump your organic waste into our pile/worm bin here at C’sC World HQ, or into one of our Neighborhood Compost Stations/backyard “sharing” piles.

5. We mix in some carbon aka”“browns”” to keep the pile balanced and lovely. Not too wet. Not too dry. Just right for the trillions and trillions of mirco-organisms to do their thing. Turning it as needed to bring in oxygen so that the decomposers can breathe.

6. Once ready, we 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!). If you don’t need the finished compost, we will donate it to a neighbor or community/school garden.

What goes into the bucket? Well, most everything that grows is OK.

“If it 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, dairy, bones, chicken, fish, greasy food scraps, fat, oil, dairy, animal waste, litter or bedding, coal or charcoal, coconuts, yard waste.

The cost? 15 dollars per month. Yep, that’s right, just 15 bucks for weekly bike-powered pick-ups.

  1. Thanks, Carter! I would just need a few for our own use – no competition :o)

  2. Good morning Carter and family! I hope your drive to New Mexico is going well-or maybe you are there already. I purchased your composting certificate from the Black and White Bash for Eastern a few weeks ago so I will get in touch with you when you get back to TC as to when we can begin. I do have my own compost bin, but often have more stuff to put in than room. I also want to write a short story about you for the Master Gardener newsletter that I help to put together, so we can talk about that too. Have a blast on your trip! Mrs. Denison (Nancy)

  3. Hi Mrs. D, Awesome. I will get you a bucket when we get home in April or you can wait till whenever you think you’ll have a lot of scraps. A newsletter blurb would be fun! You can email me at Thanks and Adios from Tucson! Carter
