YOU DIVERT FOOD WASTE

Keep a dedicated indoor waste bin to collect your organization's food waste. Use compostable or traditional trash bags and place bagged waste into provided bins.

WE COLLECT & COMPOST

We'll come by weekly to collect your bagged waste. It's taken to our local farm for sorting and converted to compost by our experienced compostiers.

YOU EARN COMPOST

...or other earth-conscious goodies. We offer a credit system based on total weight of food scraps collected, which may be redeemed at our Farm Store. 

Don't under-value your food waste!

Recycling food waste has benefits for your organization and for Mother Earth:

  • Keep your dumpsters free of food waste, which is typically costlier to collect

  • Minimize your contribution to the local landfill, reducing harmful methane gas

  • Give your food waste a purpose: it’s vermicomposted into a microbe-rich fertilizer

  • Partner with an RVA-local company to “close the loop” in food waste solutions

  • Rest easy knowing your organic waste is contributing to a better, healthier earth!
