"Compost Cooperative is reasonably priced, and gives reliable friendly service. Between composting and recycling I fill up one kitchen size trash bag a month. Thats it! It feels so good to compost my food scraps. It feels even better knowing that I'm supporting a worker-owned business whose mission is to battle inequity and climate change".
"Awesome service! Better than home compost-- not only do I avoid the rodents, raccoons, and bears my home compost has always drawn in the past, but i can throw in everything you can't in a home pile, like meat and dairy and those compostable utensils. Compost Cooperative has a great system, easy and affordable, and they are super professional as well as just plain nice--even going and grabbing my bucket from the porch when I forgot to put it out once. I love supporting this local business, and keeping so much waste out of the garbage stream.”
“I love being a member of the Compost Cooperative. Not only do my food scraps get added to a larger, monitored compost production, but I am also helping my neighborhood limit our rodent population! And, the home pick-up service makes it so easy for me to be diligent about composting! Definitely worth every penny! Thank you Compost Cooperative!”
