Mountain compost

How it works:

Sign upfor a subscription - just $6/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 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.
