A CIRCULAR SOLUTION

We don't believe in waste.

All material has the potential to be transformed into a new valuable resource, including food scraps. By collecting and composting food waste, we not only reduce material sent to landfills and incinerators, but we recapture important nutrients and microorganisms, return them to local soils, and promote stronger and healthier local food production and consumption.

 

Plus, your trash bags will never be lighter and less stinky!
