How it Works


Get Your Compostable Bags and Recepticles

Once we’ve completed our preliminary assessment and have a plan in place for your organization, the next step will be to get your compostable bags and receptacles. Click here to get started!

Throw Your Organic Material in Compostable Bags

Identify the receptacles that are used for organic material and replace the plastic trash bags with compostable bags. Then while preparing, cooking and clearing away leftover food scraps/organic materials, simply throw them in the compostable bags.

Put Your Full Compost Bags in the Compost Crusader Bins

Be mindful and cautious when filling compostable not to dilute or contaminate the organic waste with non compostable materials, otherwise the bag is compromised. Once the bag is full, Tie it up and place it outside in a compost crusader receptacle to wait for pickup.
