Home food scrap composting is one of the biggest improvements you can make to your lifestyle to reduce your carbon impact. The average American generates one pound of food scraps per day.
Start with biweekly service if you’re in a household of 3 or less, and consider weekly service if you have a home with four or more individuals. If you’re not sure you produce enough waste – try freezing all your scraps for two weeks.
All of this waste adds up – especially in our landfills – where it rots and releases greenhouse gasses and toxic runoff into the earth. But you can stop all that with curbside pickup.
Put your food waste in the green bin, and we’ll replace it with a clean bucket once or twice a month. It’s so easy!

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.
