Pendleton Heights Curbside Compost Program

Pendleton Heights’ weekly curbside food scrap collection program – powered by bicycle!

Cost?

We will pick up your compost and provide you with a new clean bucket each week for only $20 a month. That turns out to be $5 a week to do your part to prevent waste and work towards a more sustainable future!

How?
  • Step 1: Collect your kitchen food scraps in a small container in your kitchen. We suggest using a cottage cheese container, or other container that holds at least 4 cups. You might even consider using a plastic ice cream bucket.
  • Step 2: When your kitchen container is full just empty it into your 5 gallon curbside compost bucket (supplied by Jerusalem Farm).
  • Step 3: Every Trash Day (Tuesdays, except for Holidays) put your curbside compost bucket out with your trash and recycling. Jerusalem Farm will pick it up and provide you with a new clean bucket.

This larger bucket may be stored in your house or wherever you keep your trash and recycling. Then simply wash out the kitchen food scraps container and start filling it again.

Why?

Help save about 15% of your normal trash from going to the Johnson County landfill just by throwing compostable food scraps in your compost container. Instead of sitting in the landfill and creating methane those food scraps from your kitchen will break down naturally into a resource for gardens right here in Pendleton Heights!
