Following a franchise agreement with Collective Resource Compost Inc., a compost and food scrap pickup service based in Evanston, Skokie residents and business owners can now subscribe to door-to-door pickup of food scraps.
Subscribers to the service will receive a five-gallon bucket or 32-gallon toter cart for separated food scraps and then weekly or biweekly pick up. The food scraps will then be transported to a commercial compost site. After pick-up, Collective Resource will leave a clean bucket to continue collection for the next pickup.
Residents and businesses sign-up for the program directly through Collective Resource Compost Inc.
