Moonshot’s Home Composting Program

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. 

Easy Home Pick-Up Composting

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.

Home Drop-off Composting on Your Schedule

Just as with Home Pickup, you still get to participate in generating compost at home that you can claim or donate. The only difference is instead of us picking it up, you drop your compostables at one of our collection locations whenever you’re ready.

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.
