We love working with a wide variety of Philadelphia organizations to compost their food scraps and other organic waste! Some of our customers are small offices only in need of one 5 gallon bucket weekly or every-other-week pickup, others are high volume restaurants for whom we empty out multiple 32 gallon toters. And we handle volumes everywhere in between for other organizations from daycares to schools to senior living centers.
For small to medium sized commercial accounts, our large bike trailer can handle up to 600 lbs of organic waste. Though we do our best to use our bike trailers whenever possible, for volumes larger than our big bike trailer’s maximum weight threshold, we have a pickup truck to handle your needs. Our promise to the city is to only incorporate our pickup truck when necessary and, when doing so, to make our driving routes as efficient as possible.

If you think you’ll need more than four 5 gallon buckets of food waste picked up per week, more than one pickup per week, or if placing your buckets at curbside would be an issue, please contact us and we’ll schedule a consultation for custom pricing to accommodate your specific needs. We can provide additional buckets or 32 gallon toters, can handle multiple pickups per week, and can work with you to access a separate trash and recycling area as needed.
Once you’re signed up, we’ll be in touch to help you get started preventing your food waste from going to landfills asap. To view the complete list of what can go in your buckets, click here.

We look forward to composting with you!
