It is easy to get started! We will meet with you to customize a plan that makes the transition smooth and efficient. Containers are put in place and a weekly pick up service is scheduled.
Adding a container designated for compostables is a small change that can make a big difference. When food goes into the landfill it rots and releases methane which is over 20x as potent as carbon dioxide at trapping heat. By sending food scraps to be composted, not only are you helping to reduce greenhouse gasses, you are insuring that the resources that went into making the food aren’t wasted but go back into the earth completing the sustainability cycle.
We look forward partnering with you to reach our goal of closing the loop of sustainability.
