  • One Compost Can, was established in 2019 and has successfully redirected 12,000 pounds of food waste weekly from landfills. Our program currently services over 500 residential clients, 40 restaurants, and 10 schools.

  • One Compost can provides each school with five 65-gallon cans to be collected and replaced with clean fully sanitized cans collected every weekend. We collect biodegradable products eliminating the need to use compostable bags.

  • The EAP & DEP's preferred practice is to feed animals or insects to prevent rotting and the release of methane gas. Our collections are brought to our farm, sorted, and fed accordingly.
