We can provide you with a 5 gallon bucket, with a lid that seals. You are also welcome to use your own container, we will gladly empty it out into our own.
Depending on where you live, we can currently offer to pick up your compost on either Monday or Tuesday during the day between 9am and 6pm. You may choose any frequency of pick-up. We could come by once a week, every second week, once a month, or simply whenever you email to let us know your bucket is full.
If there is an accessible outdoor location we could use as the bucket pick-up/drop-off spot, that would help us a lot. For people living downtown without a suitable spot, we are able to ring your residence and exchange buckets in person, between 6pm and 8pm on Monday evenings.
If you live in a home with a separate entrance, you could leave your bucket somewhere between the door and the curb. If you live in a building with a shared entrance, an out-of-the-way spot external to the building may be most convenient. The recycling areas behind apartment buildings have been found to work well.
We use a sliding scale starting at $5 per pick-up for 5 gallons of material. Many of our clients have decided to pay $2-5 more for their pick-ups because they believe in the service we provide. We are now also asking for a one-time $3 bucket fee to help cover the costs of purchasing and delivering new buckets.
