"Fine Print"

Bucket Deposit

A one-time refundable bucket deposit of $18 is additional and due with your initial payment. This deposit is refunded in full upon return of the bucket.

Bucket Quantity

If you are new to composting, we recommend one bucket per household to start. If your needs exceed a single bucket's volume, it's easy to add an additional bucket as needed.  

Additional Buckets

Monthly - A quantity discount is available for additional buckets collected from the same residence. There is a one-time refundable bucket deposit due when you add a bucket to your monthly service.

One-time - Request a one-off additional bucket if you expect to have more waste than usual for a limited time (like a party). We'll drop it off on your next regular collection day. There is a one-time discounted collection fee of $9 (no deposit req'd) which will be included on your next autopay transaction.

Additional Waste

Please understand that our collectors cannot take additional waste that is outside of the bucket, even if it is bagged or otherwise contained. Collecting and transporting additional waste causes myriad issues, so this policy is strictly observed.

Scheduled Skips

There may be times when a vacation or other circumstances prevent you from leaving your bucket out for collection. No problem! Just let us know in advance so we can remove you from the schedule. In return, we'll give you ten compost credits. Scheduled skips with credit are limited to two per calendar year.

Forgotten Bucket

If you forget to put out your bucket on collection day, our collector will be unable to return until your next scheduled exchange. There are some drop-off options in the city of Richmond that will accept waste if you cannot wait until your next pick-up!

Pausing Service

Need to pause service for an extended period (2 pick-ups or more)? No problem! Contact us to make arrangements. We'll pick up your full bucket and will drop off your next bucket when you're ready to resume.

Moving Service

Moving? No problem - if your new home is within our service area, we will switch to your new address at any time during the month.

Canceling Service

Curbside composting isn't a fit for everyone. As always, your autopay subscription may be canceled any time and for any reason without penalty. We ask that you give us enough notice that your next scheduled autopay can be cancelled. Deposit refunds are processed within ~5 business days of your bucket's return.


We offer end of year reports to let you know how much compostable waste you've diverted from the landfill and how many compost credits you've accrued! You may contact us any time during the year for a current tally of your compost credits and may redeem them at any time.
