How To Reach Us For Residential Service

Bootstrap provides residential subscribers with a 5-gallon bucket, liner and lid. Over a week (or two), you fill it with your unwanted food scraps, leftovers or organic material. Cooked or raw, wet or dry — if it grows, it goes!! (Click here for a list of items we accept.) On your pickup day, you’ll leave the bucket near the front entrance of your residence (don’t worry, we send a reminder the night before to help you remember); Bootstrap picks it up and drops off a clean new bucket. Additionally, Bootstrap delivers up to six five-pound shares of our premium soil amendment per year, upon request. 

The cost? $11 per weekly visits, or $15 per biweekly visits (once every two weeks). Wondering if we serve your community? Got more questions? See our FAQ.
