Food scraps an other organics can make up to 30% of your household waste and averages about 1 pound of waster per person, per day. This means the average family of four can generate almost thirty pounds of food waste per week.
Our standard 4 gallon bucket services is designed to hold up to thirty pounds of waste in a convenient, snap closed container with carrying handle. We line this bucket with compostable bags to avoid additional mess, and empty them in our curbside service weekly or every other week based on your needs.
We also sell a stylish stainless steel countertop bin with a carbon filter for odor control. This fits well in any kitchen decor and encourages home cooks to toss those small scraps during meal prep into the compost. You can also accomplish this with an extra bowl, or freeze any scraps you may have if you generate waste before leaving the home for an extended period of time.
