We’ll deliver you a 5-gallon bucket, plus a compostable bag and a guide on how to compost with us.
Once a week, we’ll pick up your waste and give you a new bag. You’re ready for another week of curbside composting!
You as a subscriber can opt to pay a higher monthly or yearly rate if you can afford it, or you can select a lower price that’s made available because of the sliding scale. You receive the same service regardless of tier, but choosing a higher tier means we can offer lower prices and free subscriptions, and gives us the resources we need to create more high-paying, green jobs in the Northfield area.
|Tier 5 (supported)||$5||$60|
If you are unable to pay the supported tier but would still like to subscribe, please send us an email so we can set something up.
Pay for the whole year at any tier. Cancel anytime and be refunded for the remaining months.
This is our preferred method because it lowers credit card processing fees.
Pay any tier monthly and cancel anytime.
Pay any tier on a yearly basis. If you’d like to pay by check, start by filling out this form, and don’t fill out the credit card payment form on this page.
We’ll deliver your bucket the Thursday after you subscribe. Service starts the week after and continues all year round! This is slightly different for rural subscribers.
The definitive list of what we do and don’t accept can be found here, from the facility that processes the organic waste we collect. When you sign up, we’ll give you a two-sheet guide to what is and isn’t compostable.
Once a week on a specific day of the week depending on where you live. We’ll contact you shortly after you subscribe to let you know. This is slightly different for rural subscribers.
We’re happy to accommodate the occasional extra bucket or 2 of compost, especially around holidays. But if you regularly have more compost than fits in your bucket(s) from us, consider signing up for another bucket by filling out this form once you’ve signed up.
If we haven’t collected your bucket by 8 PM on your collection day, we didn’t skip your bucket for any reason other than that we didn’t see it or forgot about it. Our apologies! Please fill out this missed bucket contact form and we’ll get your bucket on Thursday.
We can only accept as much yard waste as you can fit in your bucket(s). If you need more space, we encourage you to either sign up for a yard waste bin from DSI for a monthly fee or take your yard waste to the City yard waste site at no cost.
If you always keep a lid on your bucket, put it on the curb every week, and clean it out regularly, you will not deal with any bad smells. In fact, putting all your organic waste in one container means your trash won’t smell like rotten food which will make your house smell better!
This has never been a problem for our subscribers. If you still worry about it, just make sure the lid is on securely when you put your bucket on the curb.
We will provide you with one 8-gallon bag for each of your buckets each week. Using the bag we provide makes our job easier and will keep your bucket cleaner. You can purchase extra bags (sold at most grocery stores), but please ensure that they are certified compostable.
Absolutely! Send us an email to set up payment for however many months in a year you’d like to participate and we’ll only charge you for those months.
We are people who love community, curbs, and compost.
