Crown Town Compost Delivers

Your backyard is small. Really small. The neighbors on either side can hold polite conversation across your patio, and the fire department mandated that the maximum number of occupants at your annual 4th of July bash is 7. In fact, even calling it a yard would be generous... like referring to bowling as a sport.

 

Yet despite your modest sized sliver of the American Dream, you still found a sunny corner where a cucumber vine rambles out of a Kitchen Garden along the fence. And  in principle, you’re sold on the idea of composting your kitchen scraps, but fitting a compost bin in your yard would be like cramming  a 12th circus clown inside an already overstuffed Volkswagen beetle.

Or maybe your neighborhood HOA ranks compost bins just above rusty RV’s on cinderblocks, or you live on the 37th floor and your backyard has a metal railing and concrete floor.

Either way, Crown Town Compost can help. Every week, they’ll pick up your kitchen scraps and other compostable material and take it to a certified compost facility. There, it’s combined with the onion peels and pepper stems from your neighbor’s fajitas, and egg shells and coffee grinds from the local diner to make premium organic compost.

It’s easy to get started, and once you sign up, they’ll deliver a 5 gallon bucket and “composting 101” handbook right to your door.

Simply fill the bucket with compostable waste, and leave it outside for weekly pickup. They’ll bring back bagged organic compost that’s ready to use in the garden. You can feel good about keeping organic material out of the landfill, and even better about the awesome organic compost you’ll have for your organic garden.

Bummed that Crown Town Compost hasn’t made it to your neighborhood yet?  Cheer up – they offer community compost days where you can bring compostable material to Atherton Market.
