Home Pick-Up Compost Service in Houston, TX

Moonshot turns homeowners and apartment renters across the Inner Loop and West Houston into full-fledged composters with our convenient Home Pick-Up Compost curbside service. 

Forget fussing with rotting food scraps and compost turners–Moonshot handles everything for you so that all you have to do is enjoy your meals, collect the food waste, and set it out for us. 

That’s all it takes to get the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping keep trash out of rapidly filling landfills, while contributing to a nutrient-rich compost bank, shares of which can either come back to you, or be donated to a local community organization.

Weekly Bin Swap

On your collection day, put your bin outside at the agreed-upon area (front porch, apartment alleyway, etc.). We do the rest! We will exchange your full bin for a clean one, supply the compostable bags and airtight bin, and even measure your contributions.
