Brown’s Greens proudly offers both residential and commercial curbside composting to all of Colorado Springs. Food and yard waste going into landfills is a big issue. When these organic wastes are not processed properly as compost and are tossed into landfills, they exude methane gases into our atmosphere, contributing to the greenhouse effect. Did you know that MILLIONS of tons of food waste every year in America is not processed as compost and goes straight into landfills? We aim to start a movement one bucket at a time to keep organic wastes out of landfills and turn them into rich, fertile, usable compost. We provide our compost clients with an animal proof bucket and a guidance sheet. All you have to do is put your food scraps and/or yard waste in the bucket and we’ll come pick it up every week! It’s easy, clean, and very affordable. You will also have choices of different perks, including free compost for your garden! For residential pick-up, we charge $18.00 per month if you want to pay on a monthly basis, or $195.00 per year (saves you $ per month and this option has better perks!) if you choose to pay on a yearly basis. A one time $10.00 start-up fee applies to both payment plans. Commercial pricing is on a case by case basis.
