Many homeowners and homebuyers today are interested in ways to make their houses more sustainable and eco-friendly. For all the information and help available about solar panels and energy-efficient appliances, very few are paying attention to the amount of waste their homes are producing that ends up in rapidly filling landfills.
That’s where we come in.
Moonshot Compost offers two varieties of residential composting service to give homeowners and apartment-dwellers the opportunity to collect a wide range of food waste and turn it into valuable compost for themselves or the community.
Collect your home’s compostables in the bags and bin we provide, and we pick it up weekly. We bring new compostable bags each week and the compost you’ve earned, if you choose, twice per year.

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.
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.
Our Referral Rewards program is our way to make sure you are paying the lowest amount possible for our residential pick-up service. You earn a $5 credit for every new residential pick-up subscriber you refer.
What bins do you provide?
We offer airtight, 4-gallon buckets for holding and transporting food waste. We also offer ventilated kitchen caddies. Both of these containers are free when you sign up.
What happens to the food waste you collect?
We take everything we collect to a compost facility, where the food waste is mixed with vegetative waste to become compost.
Can I earn my compostables back in compost?
Yes, all of our plans make it possible to get rewarded for your collections with two compost claims for your own use per year.
