Facilities We Serve

Restaurants

We’re working to make Austin’s composting game as vibrant as its famous food scene by collecting eateries’ pre- and even post-consumer waste in some cases.

Offices

Turn your 9-5 spot into a valuable source of soil nutrients for your community. 

Schools & Colleges

Our city’s 16 colleges can make a huge impact on the local environment by partnering with us to divert waste from cafeterias, dorms, and apartments.

Hospitals

Patients, healthcare workers, and visitors produce huge amounts of food waste at hospitals every year, but we’re harnessing that organic material for good.

But we can also partner with virtually any location from which large amounts of food are being sent to landfills, including:

  • Assisted Living Centers
  • Daycares
  • Country Clubs
  • Food Halls

How It Works

Set Aside Compostables

We consult with you to determine the size of your desired composting program, and get you on the pickup schedule that works for you. We are TRUE AdvisorTM certified and can plan as robust a waste diversion program as you want. All pre-consumer compostables are acceptable. In certain circumstances, we can take post-consumer waste, too. Contact us for details!

We’ll Manage the Details

We provide everything you need to collect the compostable waste, such as step cans, compostable bags, and outdoor bins with airtight lids (so no foul smells to worry about). Each pickup, we leave you a clean bin and fresh bags.

We’ll Report Your Impact

We calculate the pounds diverted from landfills with every pickup and can report these diversions, methane emissions avoided, and compost created by each collection. So your Austin business can show off its efforts and inspire your team, your customers, and all your stakeholders.

Commercial Composting FAQs

What type of containers do you offer?

For our commercial services we typically use 55-gallon drums, though container selection is part of our onboarding process.

How often do you collect my compost?

As part of your onboarding, we consult with you to determine a pickup schedule that works for you. In most cases, we collect no more than twice per week.

What happens to the compost you collect?

We take everything we collect to a compost facility, where the food waste is mixed with vegetative waste to become compost.
