What’s Compostable?

When you compost at home, you can only really compost fruit, vegetables, and yard waste. But when you drop off to a commercial composter like us, you can compost just about anything that’s been alive once.

To help, download this guide and stick it on your compost can.


Location

 
 

Click the address to pull up directions on Google: 1725 Avenue G, Omaha, NE 68110.

Coming from Downtown Omaha and heading towards the airport on Abbott Drive, take a right on Avenue H and then your first immediate right on N 15th St. East. Drive to the end of the road.

When you arrive, we’ll have green compost totes outside the fence. Just place materials in there and please close the lid.

 
 

hours

You can drop off materials anytime inside of our green totes on the outside of our gate. Our normal operating hours are Monday-Friday 8am-4:30pm + Saturday 8am-Noon.


How do you store at home & transport?

For real: don’t let this part hold you back by making it too complicated or cost deterrent. Get over the idea that composting is somehow disgusting, and start diverting your waste today! :)

Container: You can start today by using any old trash can or container around your home, purchase a 5-gallon paint bucket, or go fancy and get something with a filter like this.

Bags: We don’t require you to use anything, so feel free to save yourself some money and simply rinse your bucket out after you drop off. Slightly more cost effective: you can house it within plastic bags — we just don’t want the bags in our totes. And if you wanna go all out, you can purchase compostable bags like this, (not bio-degradable).

When you arrive, you’ll see green totes outside our fence. Place your items directly into the totes and please close the lid to deter bugs and animals.


Do you get Soil?

Yes! After every 6-month anniversary of your membership, you get a free cubic-foot bag of soil that you helped to create!
