Plate 2 Plant Subscription

Plate 2 Plant logo

The Plate to Plant curbside community compost service started as a pilot program in the Summer of 2020 and has evolved into a growing incubator project. Much like trash pickup, subscribers place compost matter into a provided bucket, leave it on their curb on a weekly basis and the Plate to Plant team transports the matter to community compost bins using a bike and trailer. Less waste, more soil!

Compost subscriptions are paid in advance in intervals of 3, 6 or 12 months and there are options to have weekly or every other week collection (depending on how much material you generate).
