6 Month




Mountain compost

How it works:
  • Sign upfor a subscription - just $8/month per household!  We will email you the padlock codes for our drop-off locations.
  • Bring your foodscraps and compostable materials in a bucket or compostable bag and drop them in our bins.  Bring leaves or other acceptable yard waste in a separate bag and leave next to our bins.
  • You can access the drop off sites 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  We change the lock codes periodically so please add info@elementscompost.com to your contacts and keep an eye out for emails from us.
  • Your subscription will renew automatically unless you unsubscribe.
  • The items you drop off become nutrient-rich soil that is available for sale in either bagged or bulk quantities.
