Composting at home has never been so simple with our weekly collections and complimentary compostable bags. Unlike a backyard compost bin, we can accept a wider variety of organics such as meat, bones, dairy, and compostable packaging including soiled pizza boxes!

CURRENT SERVICE AREAS
Due to practical necessities and our commitment to keeping a small carbon footprint, we are unable to serve all areas of Winnipeg at this time.
However, we encourage you to sign up even if you are outside our service area so we can add you to our waitlist. You can help us expand to your area sooner by telling your neighbours about our service.
ALREADY COMPOST AT HOME?
Sign up for our seasonal winter collection service.
Take your composting to new heights with resources from Green Action Centre.
If you know you will be away and do not need collections, please take a moment to complete this online form to put your service on hold. If you are away for 3 weeks or longer, we will adjust your subscription renewal date so you aren’t paying for service while you are away.
Since our collections take place weekly, the waste will be gone before it has time to get “funky”. It is also worth noting, the organics you will be tossing in the compost bin are currently going into your garbage can. So if you don’t have problems with that, our system won’t create any problems for you. Plus the pail we provide comes with a lid that further helps contain the waste and smells.
An easy and affordable way to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions.
Our Compost Guide provides detailed instructions on what goes in and what stays out of our compost collection bins. By processing organic waste at a large scale composting site, we are able to accept a much wider range of materials than the typical backyard compost. Check our guide to learn more.
Unlike regular waste disposal in Winnipeg, we ensure that all organic materials are composted aerobically, a process that prevents the production of methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Follow the link to view our process map and learn more about who we collect organic waste from, where it goes and what it’s used for!
