Do you run or own a daycare or preschool in Philadelphia? Circle Compost may be able to save you money while also providing an opportunity for your teachers to teach children about composting.
How can we save you money? If you’re being charged overage fees by the company you pay for trash pickup, our food waste pickup services should reduce the amount of trash you create by enough volume to eliminate those additional charges. It’s possible you’ll even be able to lower your number of trash pickup days per week, which could significantly decrease your ongoing costs for these services. At only $15/month for pickup of one 5 gallon bucket of food waste per week, our service may pay for itself. Click here to see our tiered pricing for higher volumes.
Becoming one of our composting partners also provides an opportunity for your teachers to teach children about composting. The younger our children are when they learn that organic food waste is not trash – it’s nutrient rich raw material for making compost needed by farmers and gardeners everywhere – the better for their future and the future of our planet.
And of course, when you become one of our composting partners, you can market your organization as environmentally friendly, a message likely to resonate with parents. Your staff can also feel good about keeping food waste out of landfills and helping Philly’s urban farmers and gardeners grow healthier crops and plants using locally made compost.
The map on this page shows our current service area, so if you are located within or in close proximity, we should be able to work with you.
