Moonshot’s Multifamily Composting Program

Helping Texans turn
food waste into compost

Your tenants may not have their own gardens, but that doesn’t mean they can’t still compost.

Moonshot Compost works with multi-family property managers to bring sustainable food waste disposal to apartments and condominiums throughout Texas, helping you do your part to address landfill overcrowding and benefit local food production.

We can help you craft a composting plan that works for your building, likely lowers your garbage fee, and adds an attractive amenity to your complex for potential residents.

And we provide all the supplies you need to get started.

Set Aside Compostables

After we consult with you to understand the scope of your desired composting program, we arrange the pickup schedule that works for you. We are TRUE AdvisorTM certified and can plan as robust a waste diversion program as you want.

We’ll Manage the Details

Everything you need to collect the compostable waste–step cans, compostable bags, and outdoor bins with airtight lids (so no foul smells to worry about)–is provided by us. We leave you a clean bin and fresh bags at every pickup.

We’ll Report Your Impact

After every pickup, we calculate the pounds diverted from landfills and report the diversions, methane emissions avoided, and compost created.

What to Compost?

Acceptable material varies slightly depending on whether you’re doing pickup or drop-off, but generally speaking we can accept all kinds of produce as well as coffee waste, bread, table scraps, pasta, egg shells, and more.


Track Your Contributions on the Diversion Dashboard

We make it simple to view the environmental benefits your donations are making with our Diversion Dashboard tool. You’ll find stats such as pounds of waste diverted from landfills and pounds of CO2 saved by composting that waste. You can also get data on your larger community’s achievements, as well.

What Happens to Your Food Waste?

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.

Drop Off Any Time

Whenever you’re ready, drive up to one of our compost drop-off locations (see drop-off areas). There you can measure and send us the weight of your compostables (if you choose to), then place them in our dedicated drum. We have simple instructions at each location to take out any guesswork on your part.
