I also HIGHLY recommend back2thedirt. Katie is wonderful, her service is impeccable AND i feel so good about composting. I, too, had been looking for ways to reduce waste going to landfill, then i heard about Katie. I love her service.

Love how easy it is! I’ve always wanted to compost and this is the ideal scenario for my busy lifestyle. We make it a fun family activity to do together.
I love Back2theDirt’s mission! Katie makes composting easy. I enjoy receiving monthly metrics of how much food waste is diverted from landfills. I also really like getting the worm castings - my plants are thriving!
I feel good not throwing my veggie scraps in the trash. Thanks for your service.
Easy process, clean odor free pickup buckets, reasonable pricing, nice getting quarterly worm castings, good communication
Back to The Dirt is a very interesting business model. Never thought I'd pay someone to compost for me. I feel 'good' about paying someone to compost for me as I see it as my continued effort to reduce my carbon footprint and be part of the solution for our global climate crisis.
We tried backyard composting with little luck. After we met Katie at the farmers market, we immediately knew that her service was for us! We easily fill our bucket weekly and love that she keeps us posted about how much food waste we are keeping out of the landfill. We look forward to continuing our composting with Katie and the worms through the winter!
