Curbside Composting

So easy, you won't even get your hands dirty.

Tell me more Sign me up

Once a week, we swap your bucket at the curb for a fresh, clean bucket - and, if requested, a bag of compost.

1. Join Online.

Buckets available at Garbage to Garden, or our partner locations.

2. Fill Bucket.
Place Curbside.

Fill your bucket and place it curbside by 6:30am on your service day.

Benefits

Say goodbye to stinky, dripping trash. Without food waste, trash remains lightweight and doesn't smell.
Save money by using fewer bags. We have participants who fill one trash bag every 4-6 weeks!
Do right by the environment. Composting benefits the air, water, and soil. Best of all, it closes the Farm-to-Table-to-Farm nutrient loop.
Support local. We compost with the experts at Benson Farm in Gorham. Our bucket soap is made by Maine Standard Biofuels from recycled cooking oil!

Only $14/month! ($168/year)

I love this service.

Since we started chucking our food scraps in a Garbage to Garden bucket, my roommate and I can go three weeks without putting a blue trash bag on the curb.

- Cassandra

A great and needed service. I hated throwing away food.

- Kristin

I can't remember life before my bucket!
