“If food waste were a country, it’d be the third largest global greenhouse gas emitter behind the US and China.”

All of the information!
What is the “Flagstaff Residential Compost Collection Pilot”?
Compost Crowd has been providing weekly and biweekly residential compost collection in Sedona since February 2018. Now, we are expanding our service area to include Flagstaff!
We are looking for 30 households to be part of a pilot program for biweekly collection in Flag. Being part of the pilot means you don’t have to pay the one-time setup fee (for the first 30 households only). If the pilot fills your first collection will be May 16th.
How does compost collection service work?
You receive a 5-gallon bucket that you will fill with food scraps and other biodegradable items, and we will come by every other week to collect it from your front porch and replace it with a clean one.
Your collection day will always be on Thursday.
Why should I sign up for collection service?
There are a lot of reasons to sign up!
1) You’re currently unable to compost your food scraps at home.
2) You have tried DIY compost and it didn’t work out. (It was a mess 😜)
3) You’re worried about attracting wildlife if you have a pile outside at your house.
4) You care about the planet and are looking to do everything you can to improve your own sustainability/decrease your carbon footprint.
5) Because composting is cool!
How does putting my food scraps in a bucket for you to collect save the planet?
When food scraps and other organic matter end up in the landfill they don’t decompose naturally. Because landfills are essentially covered in plastic the food breaks down anaerobically, or without oxygen, and emits methane.
Methane has a global warming potential 86 times that of CO2 on a 20-year time frame. Yikes!
When we divert your food waste from the landfill and return it back to the earth (where it belongs), we are not only preventing this greenhouse gas from entering the atmosphere, together we are restoring valuable nutrients to the soil which
1) Improves local soil quality
2) Decreases the need for synthetic fertilizers
3) Decreases water use
4) Decreases erosion
ALL from putting your banana peels in a bucket and having us bring it to a local farmer!
