Q: “What do you do with our food scraps?”
A: Your food scraps are collected and brought back to be composted at our headquarters. We hope to offer finished compost for sale in the future. More about our compost pile, the compost revolution, fighting food waste and sustainable living in general is coming soon to our blog.

Q: “When will my pick-up be scheduled?”
A: For residential and weekly commercial clients, pick-ups are on Monday or Tuesday depending on location. A second weekly pick-up is available for commercial clients who produce a greater quantity of food scraps. We develop our pick-up schedule to optimize for sustainability while transporting your compost to our headquarters. Schedules are subject to change periodically.
