Compost Drop Off

October 12, 2021

New Drop-Off Service

Happy Trash Can Composting is excited to announce a new drop-off spot (located at Co-op West Main) for their existing or new customers!

Owners Ryan Green and Adrienne Huckabone have long offered curbside pick-up. However, some folks live outside the pick-up zone, don't have a need for the service or have budgets that make this option unobtainable - scroll down for more on their "pay-what-you-can" option.

In an effort to make composting accessible to more people, we are partnering with Happy Trash Can to provide a drop-off location at Co-op West Main. We have marked bins located on the far west side of our parking lot.

To sign up for drop-off composting, please contact Happy Trash Can.

Please note: Our Co-op is providing the location. However, we will not be managing the program itself. All questions can go directly to Happy Trash Can.

Composting For All!

Happy Trash Can also offers a "pay-what-you-can" option for drop-off services. All drop-off subscribers receive a 5-gallon bucket to collect into, compostable liners and can get free compost each month.

"Our goal with the drop-off program is to make composting accessible to many in our community," said Ryan. "Our mission is to make diverting food scraps from the landfill as easy as possible. Not only does this reduce waste, but also allows us to create quality compost for local agricultural soils and backyard gardens." 

About Happy Trash Can

We have partnered with Happy Trash Can since 2016 to pick-up and compost our food and packaging waste. We have been able to divert 250,000 gallons from the landfill to date!

We are excited to provide this drop-off service to help expand composting in our community.
