Hello Composters!

Black Earth Compost is excited to begin curbside compost pickup in Falmouth starting August 4, 2020.

We have been servicing towns across Eastern Massachusetts for the past 10 years and are grateful for Compost With Me and what they have begun on Cape Cod. We share the same goal of restoring valuable natural resources and are excited to continue where CWM left off and collect your compostables and turn them into nutrient rich compost! Please take a close look at our service plan below. It is slightly different than CWM and we are available to answer any questions. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us at any time.

Composting with Black Earth takes 3 simple steps:

  1. Line your 13 gallon curbside bin with a brown paper bag or compostable liner. If you prefer to line your countertop container you can toss those bags directly into the unlined curbside bin.
  2. Fill your bin! Click here for a full list of compostable items.
  3. Place your bin on the curb by 7am on Tuesday morning. Black Earth will come by and empty the full contents of the bin and place it back on the curb empty.

Two payment plans available for weekly pickup:

$99.99/6 months or $17.99/month + $34 for the starter kit

The starter kit includes a 13 gallon curbside bin with a locking lid and wheels, 13 gallon liners and 3 gallon liners (countertop container not included).

We sell 13 and 3 gallon compostable liners through your online account and will deliver them during your scheduled pickup.

Plans include:

  • A bag of finished compost each spring!
  • Textile and yard waste collection (with purchase of stickers). Learn more.
  • Online account to order liners, manage billing, reach customer service and more.

Have a long driveway?

For an additional $3 a week we can pickup at your door. Please email residential@blackearthcompost.com for more information.

Once you have signed up you will receive a welcome letter with instructions on how to get started. If you sign up before the start, your subscription period will be adjusted to have a start date of 08/4/2020.

Also take note of our density discount: The price drops 30% for all once we reach 300 Falmouth residents subscribed or preregistered for the price drop. Be sure to tell your friends, family and neighbors and most importantly, follow us and share that you have signed up on Facebook and Instagram #BlackEarthCompost. 

Happy Composting!
