Every other week, our team arrives at your home to take your food scraps and leave you with a clean bucket. Your food scraps will be brought to local composters, revived into high quality compost and make its way back to homes, gardens, schools, farms, parks, and beaches of our beautiful state and beyond.
Twice a year, 20 lbs. of finished compost is offered to our customers as a token of appreciation for your contribution to making our state a greener, healthier place to live. Compost drop offs occur in late March and late September.
Note: Collection days vary depending on location
A household of two averages one 5-gallon bucket every two weeks while a family of four normally fills two 5-gallon buckets every two weeks.

Our newest community composting effort is focused around drop off areas, where you can participate by bringing your scraps to a determined location in your town. At these locations, there are multiple bins where you can dispose of your food scraps from dawn to dusk, and at your own convenience! These hub spots are protected with a code entry, allowing only members to access it. This will prevent contamination and irresponsible disposal of waste.
Drop off hub service offered at $110/yr ($9/month).
Participants are responsible for their own bucket/container dedicated to scraps.

The Healthy Soils Healthy Seas RI Project began in 2018 and is run by the Rhode Island based non-profit, Clean Ocean Access. The overarching goal of the project is to improve and protect ocean health, by educating, inspiring and empowering the community to foster environmentally responsible behaviors, with an initial focus on residential and commercial composting in Newport County, Rhode Island. HSHSRI works to implement a sustainable model that demonstrates the effectiveness, efficiency, and strategic benefit of diverting food scraps from our waste stream and increasing awareness of the connectivity of healthy soils and healthy seas.The 2020 goals are to advance the momentum established in the first year of the project and to achieve a diversion of 2,000 tons of food scraps from entering the landfill.
