How does this
You sign up and we drop off a 5 gallon bucket with a lid that you can keep anywhere you
like. You fill this bucket during the week with non-meat food waste and on Wednesday
morning (or Tuesday night) put out of bucket with the lid tightly fitted and we will replace
it with a nice, clean and newly washed bucket so you can start all over for next week.
Where does my food waste go?
The food waste is composted locally, in Allston using big tumblers. After a few weeks
when it becomes rich compost it is available for distribution to gardeners.
Is there an option where I don't need to pay $8
Yes there is - if you prefer, we can usually set you up to compost on-site at your house
or building. Ask about our customized on-site solutions with a reasonable one-time fee
for setup and training.
Can I compost on my own?
YES! View and print our simple instructions to build your own outdoor walled composter, and get started this weekend!
Communication with the neighbors: READ HERE
Read some of the interaction with our Allston neighbors! Composting is a
community activity, we have provided free consultation on how to improve your
existing compost system, and have answered questions about proper compost
methods to avoid pest infestation.
