Compost

 

We are one of the ONLY vendors in the Greater Boston Area that can pick up your organic waste – no matter how much you generate! We are working with a range of businesses and institutions to help them comply with the 2014 Massachusetts DEP Organics Waste Ban.

The majority of the food waste we collect is processed into high-quality, nutrient-rich compost at Brick Ends Farm, in Hamilton, MA. The final product is re-sold under the Kidz-B-Kidz brand, and proceeds support youth arts programming and medical research.
