Let’s talk about making the most of your compost.

We all have food scraps — and it turns out it is all too easy to turn that organic goodness from trash to treasure with a small change in habits.

Enter: NewTerra Compost, a curbside compost pickup company helping households divert hundreds of pounds of food scraps from the landfill every year. In fact, they’ve made it easier than ever to fit this eco-friendly habit right into your lifestyle.

Putting your food waste to work

Here’s how easy it is to send your food scraps from the kitchen to the compost pile:

  1. Sign up for service.
  2. NewTerra provides a fresh compost bucket for your kitchen.
  3. Each week, they pickup your bin curbside just like city trash + exchange it with a new one.

Done — no odors, no hassle, no problem.

Members also receive fresh compost for their lawn and garden twice a year. No garden? No worries — that nutrient-dense, natural fertilizer is donated to a local garden and used in the community.
