Food Waste Pick-up & Composting Service in Traverse City, Michigan

This year, we started a food waste pickup service for the local organic food Co-Op. The old produce that isn’t good enough for the local food bank gets placed in bins. And once a week, we pick it up with truck and trailer, then we unload it here at Realize Homestead and create a compost pile inside the chicken pen. This food would otherwise go to the landfill. So the Co-op is happy to pay us to haul it away and compost it for them. Let us know if you’re interested in some finished compost!

Currently, we are not taking on new accounts, but feel free to contact us if you’re interested in this service.
