Impact Earth Organics Service


Impact Earth is now offering a Food Waste & Compostable-wares Hauling service!

Beginning in May 2018, Impact Earth launched a new service, Impact Earth Organics. This service compliments our pre-existing programs and services and helps to fill a gap in zero waste infrastructure that our community needs. By diverting organics from the landfill waste stream, we are fighting climate change, decreasing CO2 emissions, and supporting our local economy!


What Waste Products does The Impact Earth Organics service take?

Because our organics are processed by a vermicomposter, we are able to take all organic materials produced in your kitchen. From vegetable peels to compostable single use plastics, we can take it all.

Including: meat, dairy, bones, paper products, compostable "bioproducts", shellfish, yard trimmings, flowers...

For all the details, view our downloadable PDF.


What we do


We provide you with a Impact Earth Organics bucket or toter 


Each week we swap your full Impact Earth Organics container for a clean, empty one


We then take your food scraps and compostable-wares to one of three farms in our network

Our vermicompost (composting with worms) processors turn your food waste and compostable-wares into nutrient rich vermicompost products.

Our farmers utilize higher quality food scraps as animal feed and traditional compost on their farms.
