What We Do

We are a ​​​compost processing service, and we offer weekly curbside collection at no extra charge. Basically, you pay us a monthly fee to turn your "feedstock" of food scraps and yard debris into finished compost. Pick up is every Friday, and we drive through just about every part of town!

A modest portion of finished compost will be distributed back to you as it becomes available. The volume and frequency will vary depending on the materials collected as a whole. You’ll get an email with specifics when finished compost time comes! 
   

Rates

$25 a month​​​​​​​ lets you put 5 gallons of food scraps at the curb every Friday. Yard debris can be bagged up and put out separately at no extra charge. You provide the 5 gallon bucket, and we'll collect the contents once a week.  

Community Engagement Options to Save $$

Split your service charge with a neighbor if you put your buckets out together.  (That's two buckets at the curb for the price of one!) Each household pays $12.50 a month. 

Start a Compost Hub! Get together with five friends, neighbors, or coworkers and find a central drop off spot you can all use. Each week, you all bring your buckets to the hub and we collect them all at once. Each member of the hub pays only $7 a month!

That Translates to:
Solo member = $25
5 member Hub = $7 each
4 member Hub = $8.75 each
3 member Hub = $11.67 each
2 member Hub = $12.50 each
It pays to talk to your neighbors!

Compostable Packaging
Curious About
Compostable Packaging?


Look for the BPI logo!

The Biodegradable Products Institute tests products to ensure that they are in fact compostable. Simply search their approved products by company or item. ​​


We have successfully  composted several types of bioplastics, including plates, bowls, cups, and cutlery.

Unfortunately,  many items that look compostable (like to-go coffee cups) are actually lined with regular old plastic. These items are basically trash that will need to be sorted out of the finished compost product. Many items that are labled "biodegradable" are not actually compostable. 


Our take at Juneau Composts is that it's always best to carry your cup and pack a spork. If you must use disposables, find ones that are labeled as certified BPI compostable
