We get it, food scraps can be nasty, that's why we pick up weekly so that it never sits for too long. in the Summer time pails are cleaned out every week so you don't ever have an accumulation of smells in your pail. In the winter, everything is frozen and therefore no smells.
If you want to be extra cautious so you don't have a smelly bucket, we recommend the following.
For the extra squeamish who want to take it to the next level here are some extra tips:
By buying our compost you enjoy the following benefits:
If it was living once you can chuck it in the bucket. By that we mean we take all of your food scraps. While you shouldn't compost meats, and fats and cheeses in your backyard, our piles can handle this type of material. For a full list of what can and cannot go into the bucket check out our blog.
You bet! Our mission is to have as many people composting as possible. If that means sharing the cost with a neighbor than go for it!
Whether it's a party in your home, an event at your church or community hall, weddings, or a music festival for thousands of people, you can count on us to help make your event a sustainable success. We can provide buckets and we'll pick up after an event, we can help you to figure out how to make the event as waste free as possible, and we can even provide a waste free booth to educate guests on what can and cannot be composted.
Of course! We want to make sure that everyone has an option to compost their food scraps. However there are some things to consider. As our buckets are not cleaned out in the winter it is advisable to keep them outside. If that is possible on a balcony or outside your building that's great! If not, let's talk to your neighbors and even your landlord about setting something up with a larger bin that the whole building (or just those who have signed up) can use.
There are also options for indoor composting on your own. Contact us and we can provide information and hook you up with our friends at McInnes Vermiculture products!
I grew up on a farm, where composting was something that was just done. I thought everyone did it that way until I moved into the City and realized how wrong I was.
It has always made sense to me that when we take something out of the soil (cut the grass, eat the vegetable, rake up the leaves) that we need to put it back some how so we are not just taking, without returning the favor.
Compost improves soil, and with better soil we can grow better food, and with better food we have healthier people, and with healthier people we have better communities. Maybe I watched too much Lion King on repeat as a kid and really took the Circle of Life bit to heart. But I saw that people wanted to make environmentally friendly choices but didn't have the time, the know how, or space to do it so I saw an opportunity to help.
Plus I have young sons, it takes a lot to gross me out anymore.
