Compost Bucket Program

The cost for this program is $60 per year. You can fill out our Participant agreement below.

Your compost bucket and lid must be returned to The Foodbank should you ever choose to end your participation in the program. In the case of lost or damaged buckets, participants are responsible for a $20 replacement cost.

Recommended Storage:
We ask that, if at all possible, your compost bucket is stored inside your home or garage. This keeps it protected from the elements and will help them last longer! Your bucket comes with a sealable, airtight lid that will prevent odor from escaping while storing your compost.

One option would be to store your compost bucket in your garage and keep a smaller container in your kitchen for day-to-day use. There are kitchen compost bins available for purchase online, or you can reuse old salad containers, milk jugs, etc. Once these are full, you simply empty them out into your Foodbank compost bucket.
