FAQ commercial compost

Once you've received your customized quote and set up a commercial composting plan with us, we'll continue pick-up services per your agreed days and time. If you ever need to make adjustments to your account, just let us know!

Don’t hesitate to reach out with any further questions. You can reach us at info@neighborhoodcompost.com

What can I compost?

You can follow our compost guide HERE! We accept all kinds of paper and cardboard as long as it's matte and free of stickers, tape and staples. That means we can compost printed paper, corrugated cardboard boxes and more! We do not accept flowers since these can negatively impact our compost pile.

Where do you service/DEliver?

We currently offer commercial composting for businesses in Northern New Jersey. Curious if your business is on the route? Send us an email!

Do I have to be at the office for compost pick-up/drop-off?

Nope! So long as we have access to where you keep your compost, we can do all the work for you. 

How do contamination fees work? OR Why did I receive a contamination fee?

We send a contamination fee to our commercial subscribers when there is an excess of contamination in your organic matter, i.e. produce stickers, rubber bands, plastic, or other non-organic materials. We sort through the material by hand to remove any non-organic matter. Our finished compost is used to grow food, so please be mindful and remove all non-organic material before placing items in your compost container to avoid a contamination fee.

Can I freeze my subscription? 

Yes, you can freeze your subscription for up to one month at a time. Please let us know before pickup day so we can notify our driver to skip your business. 

Do you supply compost bins?

Yes! We'll supply compost bins for your business. If you want to buy additional biobags, we have those available for purchase. There is a fee for replacing a bin, bucket, or toter if it is missing or damaged beyond repair.
