Hey Squirm Squad
We have some business updates and new items we will be including in our Community Compost pick up service.
Pumpkins and Gourds!
We always offer free collection of all Halloween and Fall themed pumpkins and gourds for our community compost subscribers. Nonsubscribers can also recycle their pumpkins with us for anywhere between $5 and $25 based on miles and volume. Please tell your friends.
Small quantities of books will be accepted for free with every one of your regularly scheduled pick ups. Leave books out with your bucket and we will know that they are meant for us. Because we have so many wonderful clients across Palm Beach and Martin County, we pass many free libraries, with some actually hosted on our customers’ properties. We want to encourage community involvement and reading amongst all ages, so we will offer free pick up and distribution of all kinds of reading materials to the free libraries we pass on our routes. Again, this is a free service, just leave out with your bucket for this service.
Another recycling service we are excited to offer is plastic bag/film recycling. Shopping bags cannot be recycled with your curbside pick up service, however most grocery stores offer plastic bag/film recycling. We already recycle our household’s plastic bags and films this way, but would like to extend this service out to all our subscribers. For an additional $4 a month you can have an extra bucket to put your clean (no food residues or receipts) plastic bags and films in for pick up and recycling with your already scheduled compost service. You may also fill 1 shopping bag with the other bags and attach it to your bucket so it doesn’t blow away. Whichever method of collection works best for you can be arranged and added to your account notes. Just send us a message or call to add this service on.
We have also been up to some exciting new things!
Have you ever been to Caribbean Plants and Produce, in Loxahatchee Groves? On Sundays every weekend from 10am to 2pm Mel, the Worm Queen, is selling worm tea and other products including a large selection of Flowering Plants. This is the first time in 2 years where we have regular hours to come speak to us and pick up your orders. This may also become a Compost Drop off site, since we no longer have any place to drop off small batches of scraps since losing our partnership with the Garden Shoppe.
With our new partnership with Caribbean Plants and Produce, we are SO EXCITED to offer food again! This neighborhood farmers market focuses on providing high quality organic food and hyperlocal produce to the community. Many of the produce selections are from our neighbors in Loxahatchee and surrounding West Palm Beach. Check our website regularly to see when this exciting option launches, ordering should be open the week after Thanksgiving, November 28th.
