Food Scrap Pick-up for the Lansing Area

Do you want to keep your food scraps out of the landfill? We take your compostable waste and turn it into amazing compost that you can have or let us use locally.

Diverting food from our landfills is an important way to combat climate change and making it into compost keeps those nutrients local and builds quality soil for local gardeners.

How it Works

If you live in our service area (blue area below) we will bring you a bucket, you fill it up with food scraps, and we will come pick it up and bring you a clean bucket every other week ($16/month) or every week ($31/month). Households with three or more people typically use the weekly service.

pick up service boundary

If you live outside our service area, you can swing by our place (near the intersection of Hayford and Michigan in Lansing), grab a clean bucket, fill it up, drop it off, and repeat ($18/month).

We’ll reach out to get you a bucket as soon as you sign up!

Making Compost

We take your food scraps to one of our facilities we were turn it into healthy, nutrient-rich compost. Our compost process strives to be as sustainable as possible, relying on humans and chickens to do the work.

Finished compost is returned to customers that can use it or used by local gardeners.

Cancellations, Refunds

Please contact us to cancel your service at any time. As soon as we have your bucket back, we will issue a refund for your unused days of service.
