Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite things I’ve discovered since going zero waste, and that is Compost Nashville. They are a new company in Nashville and they are definitely the most convenient way to handle all of your organic waste.
How it works:
- It’s $35.00 a month for the service and this bucket. (Which I keep on my porch, even though it doesn’t smell at all.)
- You dump all organic waste inside the bucket that is lined with a compostable bag.
- Compost Nashville picks up the bucket once a week and replaces the bag so everything is so fresh and so clean, clean.
Even though I live in an apartment and it’s about 10 steps from my kitchen to this bucket, I’m still too lazy to walk to the bucket every time I cook. Also, if I’m skinning raw carrots or potatoes, I don’t want to bring in this outdoor bucket to my inside carpet – gross. So I keep all my scraps and leftovers in this old pot in my freezer so it doesn’t smell. (see picture below)
This old pot makes everything so much smoother to go from cooking to compost. I occasionally clean out the pot, honestly mostly for aesthetics, and then just throw it back in the freezer.
Not only is this such an amazing value and convenience for a zero food waste household, there is also your biannual mulch delivery. Twice a year Compost Nashville will deliver some garden-ready compost for your yard. If you don’t have a garden or need for the compost, you can donate it back to Compost Nashville.
If you want to be awesome and sign up, use code TOMATO at checkout in the “space for questions or sharing”, and you will get $5.00 off your first month! If you have any questions feel free to ask, I am more than happy to help out. 🙂
