RESIDENTIAL COMPOSTING

Single-family Homes

Our green bin is the perfect fit for home composting. Collect your vegetable scraps, meat, dairy, bones, grease, paper towels, wax paper, compostable serviceware, coffee grounds and grains all week long in our sealable 13-gallon green bins. Then once a week we’ll come by and empty it out for you.

It’s just that simple.

Multi-family Homes

Just because you live in an apartment or condominium doesn’t mean your food waste has to go to the landfills.

Our new 5-gallon sealable bucket is perfect for apartments and condominiums. Fill your air-tight, sealable bucket with vegetable scraps, meat, dairy, bones, grease, paper towels, wax paper, compostable serviceware, coffee grounds and grains all week long. Then once a week, leave it by your front door and we’ll empty it out for you!

Some of our clients who are breakin’ it down

Break it Down was founded in 2009 by husband and wife duo Jeff Paine and Melanie MacFarlane.

What began as recognition that there were no composting services available for local businesses, has grown to include the most comprehensive recycling and composting service in town.
