WHAT YOU DO:
Keep the 5-gallon bucket, that we provide, near your kitchen. Add your veggie scraps, egg shells, coffee grounds, spoiled fruit and other compostables!
When it's time to swap out the bucket, leave it in your designated bucket location for pickup. We'll collect it and leave you a fresh one.
Your food scraps head to one of several local Chicago farms to be processed.
WHAT WE DO:
We provide you with a bucket and lid.
We process your food scraps back at our farm in Englewood and take the rest to a commercial worm farm in Chicago. The finished compost we create with your food scraps is used to build urban farms within the city!
For every 10 pickups, members are rewarded with worm castings (2 LB bag), a $5 voucher to a local farmers market, or a $5 voucher to one of the restaurants that also compost with Compost Club.
Weekly members get 4-5 stops per month
Bi-Weekly members get 2-3 stops per month
MONTHLY: $15 /Month
Monthly members get 1 stop per month

$5 dollars for your first bucket and $5 per bucket swap.
Please note that if you bring your own bucket or container, it must hermetically seal and you will likely not see the container again.
