You get a bucket delivered with curbside compost service or from a drop site. The lid snaps on tight so you don’t have to worry about odors, and it’s big enough to hold up to two weeks of scraps.
Fill ‘er up! Toss in your food scraps from the kitchen counter. Remember to avoid compostable packaging and uncooked meats at this time. Dairy products and cooked meats/bones are accepted along with plant materials!
Put your compost bucket out when you get your reminder text message, or take it to one of our drop off sites like The Human Bean. Enjoy a little treat while you’re there!
Curbside customers get their buckets weighed and emptied, while drop off customers have to empty their own. The pickup weights help us craft our compost recipe and measure offset.
Compostable bag liners for your bucket help keep it clean and easy for the next time around. Curbside customers get a fresh liner with service, drop off customers have bags available on site.
Reset, refreshed and ready to rock! Your compost will be picked up weekly or bi-weekly with service reminders via text or email. Drop off customers can come as needed to their drop location.

Farmers get the benefit of having a managed composting process that remediates pathogens and unwanted seeds to produce a high quality soil amendment and fertilizer.
Your food scraps go to improving local soils and growing high quality crops right where you live. The best part? You get access to high quality food scrap compost from Compost Queen.
Composting is the process of turning organic material into a soil amendment through the use of an aerobic process that requires water, carbon and nitrogen. Compost Queen does thermophilic composting, relying on microbes, bacteria, nematodes, amoebas, fungus and more to accelerate decomposition.
Finding the perfect balance of recipe for your feedstocks and your environment leads to the production of a high quality soil amendment often known as compost, or particulate organic matter. This material can greatly increase soil organic matter, water retention and crop yields.
We make small batch, craft compost to build better soils, reduce greenhouse gasses and improve local agricultural production.
