Residential Service

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 Tuesday and Friday, and we drive through just about every part of town!

Acceptable material includes raw and cooked foods of all kinds, except for meat and fish; organic yard debris; paper products, and more. See the full sort list  here .

We sell our finished compost by the 5 gallon bag, and customers have first dibs. Please understand that we are a new, small complany and takes time to make good compost. Customers get an email with specifics when finished compost time comes.
   

Rates


The Solo Rate is $25 a month ($26.25 including tax). Set 5 gallons of food scraps at the curb each week. Yard debris is accepted as well. A perks with the solo rate includes the ability to put your service on hold as needed for travel.

Community Engagement Option to Save $$​

The Hub Rate of $12.50 a month ($13.13 including tax) gets you service at the curb every week in conjuction with other people.  Get together with friends, neighbors, or coworkers and find a central drop off spot you can all use (called “the hub”). Each member of the hub gets their own bucket and their own invoice. On collection day you all bring your buckets to the hub and we collect them all at once.

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 and Dixie paper plates) 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
