Available for City of Sarasota Restaurants or Businesses

HOW DOES IT WORK?

We train your staff, get you the supplies you need to get started. Then once or twice a week we pick up food scraps or inedible wasted food from your restaurant or business and compost it. It's that easy.

Food scrap to compost pick-up services include 1-2 x weekly pick-up visits to your restaurant or business, billed on a monthly rate basis listed below.
