1) It sounds like a great program, but we already compost
That's wonderful. We applaud your efforts. But do you compost meat and bones? They are the most calorie dense of all your kitchen scraps, and produce the most methane in the landfill (which is 28 times more harmful than C02). Also, with all the hassles, many people don't compost in the winter. It's amazing if you do, but if not, perhaps you would consider a winter subscription?
2) Could I really fill a bucket a week?
You would be surprised by how your food scraps add up. Our customers, even those living alone, regularly fill between 1/2 and 3/4 of a bucket a week. Many end up asking for a second bucket. However, if you are worried about not filling a bucket, why not invite someone in with you? It's a great way to get to know your neighbours, or check in with someone who may be vulnerable.
3) What happens to the compost?
Kitchen scraps that you give us are taken to a number of farms around Almonte, where they are converted into compost. Customers are welcome to the finished compost for their gardens. The excess will be offered to local charities, such as the Youth Centre, who will use it in their fundraising.
