If I get the every other week or monthly service, can I stockpile my food scraps in the bucket for the whole month?

If you choose to have your bucket serviced every other week or once per month, we ask that you please freeze your food waste until your pickup day. Our goal at The Compost Group is to work to create the highest-quality soil products from the waste stream. To do that, we stay away from antimicrobials, even popular ones like Bokashi, as to ensure we create the best environment for the good guy microorganisms that have the potential to bring life back to our soil. This also ensures that you don’t end up with a stinky bucket while you wait for your pickup If you don’t have the space for that, just sign up for our weekly service! <3
