At Break it Down, we compost ANY food waste—yes, even meat and bones—as well as compostable serviceware. We schedule as many pick-ups as you need, be it weekly or daily – even on weekends!


Unlike other services, we use bins that can be sealed completely. With each pick-up we swap out clean, rinsed barrels, eliminating the potential for odor or other nuisance conditions.


Contact us today and let us create a composting system tailored to meet the needs of your business!


We make going green easy.

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.
