Residential Collection — Compost at home

compost bins We're pleased to offer a residential composting service to the Charlottesville, Crozet, Waynesboro, Staunton and Harrisonburg areas. It's a great solution for those looking to compost at home, but don't have the backyard or time.

We make it easy:
  • We provide the bin, compostable liners and quick guide to composting
  • You fill the bin with your food scraps and compostables
  • You set it outside on collection day
  • We empty your bin and leave you a new compostable liner(s)

Doing Good Locally
Beyond just a recycling service, this is about building a cleaner community, keeping this valuable resource out of the landfill and returning it to local farms and gardens to grow more plants and food.

Free and Discounted Compost
As part of the service, once a year we offer our members free finished compost for use around your home. Looking for even more compost? As a member, we'll give you discounts on bulk compost available only to members.

Available in two strategically-named sizes:

  • Small – For those interested in just composting food scraps, choose our 5 gallon sealed bin. We will collect it on a weekly basis. Perfect size for apartments, condos and town homes. Subscription Price: $22.50/month, plus a one-time new member fee of $25.
  • Large – Also have yard waste to compost? Choose our 65-gallon wheeled bin for your food and yard waste. We'll pick it up every other week. Subscription Price: $25.50/month, plus a one-time new member fee of $25.
We don't ask for a long-term commitment. You're welcome to cancel your membership at anytime, but think that you'll love composting with us.
