Garbage to Garden's community of die-hard composters continues to grow by word of mouth and in service to others. We're proud to offer a program that is accessible to everyone regardless of income; subscribers who refer their neighbors and our unique volunteer program are both ways to receive free Garbage to Garden service.

Over 10% of Garbage to Garden subscribers have participated in our volunteer program!


Garbage to Garden is proud to share our knowledge and story with people and organizations in our community. We have presented at schools from Pre-K to post-grad, local clubs, professional network groups, industry conferences and even provided on-site volunteer work for community groups and student work learning programs.

When we partner with area schools, not only will we provide receptacles, we are available to provide school-wide training, help with signage, and classroom visits to ensure a successful compost transition. Not to mention, we help to save taxpayers thousands in organic-waste removal costs each year!
