Annual Cost and Replacement Fees:
The cost for this program is $60 per year. You can download and fill out our Participant agreement here, and send it in along with your payment to:
The Foodbank, Inc.
56 Armor Place
Dayton, OH 45417
OR you can pay online through PayPal by filling out the following form. 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.
