Did you know at least 30% of what goes into our local landfills is compostable kitchen and yard waste?
When this organic waste reaches our near-capacity landfills, air cannot get to most of it, and as it breaks down, methane gas is created. This damages Earth's atmosphere.
Composting these wastes helps to reduce harmful greenhouse gases, and creates a product that can be used to help improve soil, water quality, and grow the next generation of crops
Compost Carpool offers a community-driven alternative to home composting. We collect food, yard, paper and cardboard waste and donate it to local farms and community gardens to contribute to their compost piles, or in the case of food scraps, feed their animals.
WHAT WE DO
Compost Carpool offers a community-driven opportunity to divert food from landfills. We offer three subscription options. Community drop off, porch pick-up, and all-in. When you join the carpool, you’ll get a welcome kit that includes a bucket and instructions on what you can compost. Then, simply collect waste during the week. We will pick it up and leave you with a fresh bucket, or you can drop it off and exchange your full bucket for a new one. Leave the rest to us!
Fill your bucket each week with compostables like fruit and veggie scraps, coffee grounds, eggshells, shredded paper, etc.
WE’LL PICK IT UP
Or you can drop it off! We weigh your full bucket and exchange it for a new one. Then, we transport and donate the compostables to local farms and community gardens.
When you join, you’ll enjoy tips, tricks and gifts on how to live a more sustainable lifestyle as part of the ride. Plus, $1 of your monthly subscription goes to organizations that support our mission.
