Food Scrap Pick-up for Lansing

Do you want to keep your food scraps out of the landfill? Do you need compost for your garden? We will take your compostable waste and turn it into amazing compost that you can use or donate to a community garden in the neighborhood.

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

We offer two services: pick ups and drop offs. If you live in our service area (the Eastside neighborhood) 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 week or every other week. If you live outside our service area, you can swing by our place (near the intersection of Hayford and Michigan), grab a clean bucket, fill it up, drop it off, and repeat!

As soon as you sign up, we’ll reach out to get you a bucket and provide a list of inputs that we accept.


Pick up service is $14/month for every other week pick ups, and $28/month for weekly pick ups. Larger households or folks that eat lots of veggies will likely need weekly service. Drop off service is $15/month. Most customers pay by card and are charged monthly on the same day of the month that you signed up on.

  • Fruit and vegetable food scraps (please remove the PLU stickers)
