Composting Stats
The EPA says:
 
In 2014 about 258 million tons of municipal solid waste were generated in the US. Organic materials such as paper, yard trimmings and food were the largest component. Paper accounted for over 26 percent, and yard trimmings and food accounted for another 28.2 percent.
 
THE FACT: 54% of our "trash" is compostable!
 
Juneau buries 32,000 TONS of garbage in the landfill every year. You can do the math on that one!
 In 2014 BioCycle Magazine identified 198 U.S. communities with curbside collection of food scraps, representing 2.74 million households spread out over 19 states. Some of these are run by municipalities, while many are curbside subscription services, just like ours.
With over 70,000 pounds of material already composted, we look forward to sharing our expertise and expanding our services to the community. We thank you for keeping your organics out of the landfill and for allowing us to make a rich, local soil amendment to share with our growing community!
