No Contamination Pledge
To Successfully acknowledge the "No Contamination Pledge" all you need to do is read through our "What To Compost" tab & this "No Contamination Pledge". By just subscribing/registering we assume you have done this and understand the importance of 0% contamination in your Collection Bucket/Container.
To successfully create compost, we must combine yard waste with food waste. If any of the materials that go in the compost pile ARE NOT compostable, the composting process is hindered and ultimately contaminated.
Contamination in compost is similar to littering; would you peel your fruit sticker and throw it on the ground? Would you dispose of your aluminum foil in your garden bed? Or would you bury plastic bags when you are planting a tree? The answer to those questions is a big "NO".
NO: plastic bags, rubber bands, twist ties, plastic produce clips, foil, product sticker on fruits & veggies, wax coated paper products, rubber wine corks, and many more. If you are not sure please reach out to us.
The composting process needs to be as clean as possible and this requires direct supervision of what goes into your compost bucket.
If contaminants are found in your collection bucket on a continual basis your service will cease.
