HOW IT WORKS

Composting is not complicated

Composting is not complicated, but takes time and effort. In our experience, the process turns out to be more labor-intensive and time-consuming than someone new to composting expects, and even those who are the most enthusiastic about getting started end up not wanting to deal with the mess. Sometimes, the end result,  the usable compost, valuable soil additive, ends up going to waste.

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.

It’s this easy

1

SIGN UP

Join online or visit us at one of our weekly community drop-off locations where you can pick up your bucket and welcome kit.

2

START COLLECTING

Fill your bucket each week with compostables like fruit and veggie scraps, coffee grounds, eggshells, shredded paper, etc.

3

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.

Subscription Options

We offer three subscription options. 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!

Community Dropoff

We have partnered with like-minded businesses in the area who host us weekly as community drop off locations. If you’re already part of the carpool, check the calendar for times and locations, then bring your bucket by, we’ll weigh it and exchange it for a clean one. If you’re new to the carpool, and just joined online, stop by to say hi and pick up your bucket and welcome kit!
