Residential Service

We provide the Container complete with liner and lid

You provide the ENERGY (food scraps)!

Your Container is a sanitary 5-gal bucket with an easy-to-remove lid.

If container becomes damaged or stolen, we will replace the first one however will need to charge ($7) if this becomes a regular occurrence as we work out the best system for your location. Your bucket is your responsibility so please help or let us know if you can provide a key to a locked gate, or a door code for apartments to ease this process.
