Drop off Service

Current drop off locations

In our pursuit to make composting as accessible and affordable as possible, Bootstrap is “rebooting” our drop-off program! Enjoy the convenience of composting on YOUR schedule for just $12.50 every four weeks. 

So How Does It Work?

When you sign up for drop-off service, we will tell you the four-digit code that gives you access to the drop-off location in your area. Simply fill your container (you may provide your own or  purchase a Bootstrap bucket when you sign up) with food scraps, and whenever it fills up, bring it to the drop-off site. Use the access code to unlock the unit and deposit your scraps inside! If your unit is provided with brown material (wood shavings, sawdust, etc.) please add a scoop or two on top of your scraps to help eliminate odors and keep the bin from getting too messy for the next customer. 

Eager to see a drop off site in your community? Do you represent a town or municipality that’s interested in this model? Give us a shout.
