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? Also, Colorado Springs gardeners know all too well how generally poor our soil is, and good compost does wonders for poor soils. We aim to start a movement one bucket at a time to keep organic wastes out of landfills and turn them into good, fertile, usable compost. If you and your family want to be a part of this movement, our Residential Pick-up option is the option for you! We provide our residential compost clients with an animal proof bucket and a guidance sheet on everything you need to know about composting with us. We’ll come every week to pick up your compost, exchange your bucket for a clean one, and place it back by your doorstep. You will also receive free finished compost for your garden or choices of other perks if gardening isn’t your thing. Join the movement; it’s easy, cheap, and clean!
