How it works: You fill your container with fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, egg shells, and more. Your Gainesville Compost Bike Crew member visits and collects your bucket from your doorstep every week.

Your green-waste is pedaled to nearby community composting centers and turned into a product, Soil Food, which is returned to you monthly — or donated, your choice — for growing fruits, veggies, or herbs. We also share a portion of the Soil Food produced with urban farms and other community composting partners. That's what we call closing the loop.

Sign up below and we will email you to welcome and schedule.
