I love this program. I have always wanted to compost, but knew myself well enough that I didn't want to deal with a compost pile in my yard. I'm not on top of things enough for that! And I'm not much of a gardener, either. This way, I feel good about doing something to make things better. I personally have noticed we're putting out fewer trash bags--probably about a tall kitchen bag less every week or so, and that makes me very happy. I'm seeing the results right here. I also use our compost as a barometer for how much fruits and veggies we're eating. Thanks!

"Compost Cab has been an indispensable partner in creating and implementing our food waste composting pilot. The 50 participant households love it, and we've captured more than 8 tons of food scraps in the past year. In fact, it's been so successful that we're planning to triple the size of our program for 2013!"

"It's been really great getting started -- I have my whole household trained to use our counter compost container, and my 8-year old is responsible for emptying it into our bin on the porch. He loves it, as he is the one who convinced me that we had to start doing it."

"I've been composting with Compost Cab since they started in 2010, and I've never looked back! As an avid cook, I produce more than my fair share of food scraps, and I love that they're being put to good use. They just make it so easy -- it's a terrific service! Worth every penny. And a small price to help make change."
