How It Works
Want to know how composting works? Here’s our primer. Tl;dr: Composting doesn’t stink (it actually smells kind of sweet), and it’s really good for the environment.
As for our service, it’s a simple two-step.
Step 1: Fill your Swell Well, our fancy name for a five-gallon compost bucket, with compostable items. Not sure what you can compost? Check out the list of items we accept in your Swell Well!
Step 2: Leave your Swell Well out for us to empty on your scheduled day. We’ll collect the organic waste from your bucket and deliver it to our local composting partner facility.
And Repeat. Yep! It’s that easy.
Bonus: Each spring, we offer customers up to 40 pounds of finished compost delivered to your home as part of your subscription! During this period, we also offer additional compost for sale for those who want more than 40 pounds.
We pick up once every two weeks. If you think you’ll need more than one five-gallon bucket, just add an extra bucket to your order at checkout.
