Questions? Ask a maggot farmer.
Composting has been around for a long while, but it's a relatively new concept to a lot of people, and the way we do it is pretty unique. We get a lot of questions about our dirty job, and we're always happy to respond. If you don't see your question below, feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask away!
what if you don't service my area?
At this point, our service is available only in the geographic areas outlined on our website. If for some reason we have to modify the areas we are currently serving, we will let you know.
What if I forget to put my bin out?
Unfortunately, if your bin is not outside or in the agreed-upon place when we stop by, we can’t reschedule. We’ll just get it the following week. In some cases though, such as holidays or bad weather, we may need to reschedule. We will let you know within 24 hours and we’ll schedule a make-up day.
Do I still have to pay for my service if I go out of town?
Nope! Just give us 14 days advance notice via email and we will prorate the cost. However, if you want to suspend service for longer than a month, we will need to formally cancel your service. We hope you’ll join us again upon your return.
What happens to leftover finished compost?
Any compost soil that is left over after the twice-yearly pick-up will be donated to a local school or community garden.
Can I buy finished compost from you?
Currently we are not offering our finished compost for sale. If you subscribe to any of our services, you will receive finished compost twice a year. If you're interested in purchasing additional soil, check out these people.
i Don't want compost back, do I have to pay to drop off?
We wish we could offer our services for free to everybody and their mother. Unfortunately, it's not a sustainable business model for us. About 50% of our composters choose to donate their share to a local farm or garden. If you're looking for a free option, we recommend checking out your local UF/IFAS Extension office for free composting classes.
