FROM SPOILS TO SOIL
How it Works
1. Sign up and receive your 5 gallon bucket
2. Fill your bucket with compostable waste
You’re creating compostable waste every day whether you realize it or not. Simply take that waste (click here for a full list of what you can compost,) toss it in your bucket, and go back to living your daily life.
3. We pick it up once a week
We will schedule an time that works for you where we can come and pick up your bucket full of goodies. When the day comes, simply take your bucket, put a lid on it, and leave it outside for our team to retreive.
4. We turn your waste into soil and give it back to you or donate it to community gardens
We take your unwanted waste and turn it into nourishing soils. From there you can either keep the soil (it’s yours after all) or you can donate it to community gardens. Either way, your waste is returned to the earth!
Did you know that 50% of household garbage can be composted? Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to put that 50% to work. Plus we make it simple. We come straight to your house, condo or apartment, pick up the goods, and transform it into nourishing plant food.
Office paper is compostable. So are coffee grounds. The average restaurant throws away 100,000 lbs of food every year. That’s not a typo. BCS helps restaurants close the loop from farm to table. Also helping offices think outside the cube with composting solutions built for modern businesses.
Providing Composting Services Since 2016
Brian Schneider started his composting business because he felt that he needed to do more to help our environment. As he became more interested in gardening, Brian began composting food waste which opened him up to more ideas. Everyone is throwing their leftovers in the trash and could easily recycle it.
Throughout these past few years, Brian worked with composters, farmers and business owners, gaining valuable knowledge and learning how truly beneficial composting can be to our environment and community. We are fighting an uphill battle to change our environmental issues but the little bit more we do every day as an individual, family and community we can make a huge difference.
