At Moonshot, we believe it’s time for radical thinking to stem the tide of food waste going to landfills. That’s why we’ve brought our services to Austin–home of “keep it weird”–to give Austinites a way to take the lead in this fight.
Our commercial composting program helps businesses in Texas’ capital
Get in touch with us today to learn how you can take your Moonshot.
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.
Turn your 9-5 spot into a valuable source of soil nutrients for your community.
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.
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:
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 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 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.
We make it easy to track and share your waste diversion achievements via your personalized Diversion Dashboard. Here you’ll find monthly and total stats on how many pounds of waste you’ve diverted from landfills, the equivalent amount of emissions avoided, and more that you can use in your ESG reporting and sustainability marketing.
Variety of bins and bags available
Employee training to ensure your compost is uncontaminated

Call us nerds, but we think it’s really cool how spoiled food and leftovers can become a valuable commodity when given enough time and a place to relax. Where is that, you ask?
Your Moonshot collections are transformed into compost at either commercial composting facilities or community gardens.
Wondering how we work with potential customers? We have a page for that! Follow the link below to see how we go from an introductory call to weekly pickups.
For our commercial services we typically use 55-gallon drums, though container selection is part of our onboarding process.
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.
We take everything we collect to a compost facility, where the food waste is mixed with vegetative waste to become compost. Learn more about what happens to your food waste.
