Rust Belt Riders’ compost collection service is a simple, affordable way for organizations to make a positive impact on their community and environment.

All you need to do is place some of your would-be waste material into our bins instead of the garbage. Then, we pickup on a schedule that works for you, and exchange your full bin for a fresh new one.

Our processing ensures your material goes straight to local food production, reducing water runoff and cutting emissions from both landfill off-gassing and transport.

With our reporting capabilities you can understand the impact you're making, from your kitchen to your community. Try a free week and learn the difference your organization can make.

“I enjoy working with Rust Belt Riders for a variety of reasons but the biggest would be how easy they make it! Their on-site training helps our staff learn how to participate in the program, and their bin service is so stealth, you'd think they were ninjas! ”
