Buckets, Bags, and Benefits
Schedules, Fees, and Payment Options
There are three collection schedules: weekly and bi-weekly(every two weeks) and once a month.
Not quite sure which schedule is best? You can try one schedule and change it if necessary.
We also offer seasonal collection. If you like to compost during the three seasons, but do not enjoy trudging out to the bin during the cold winter you can sign up for winter service starting the 1st of October through the end of March. To receive finished vermicompost, you will need to sign up for the full six months.
Weekly - $34.00/mo.
Bi-weekly - $21.00/mo. (every two weeks)
Once a month - $15.00/mo.

Once you have signed up, you will be contacted within 48 hours to make arrangements to drop off your bucket.
Recycled and re-usable items are used as much as possible.
Don't be surprised if you see filling ingredients or a pickle logo on the back of your bucket!
Each bucket has a cover to keep it safe from children, pets and outside critters.
The lack of air flow causes the wrong kind of microorganism to develop and create the familiar nasty odors. We provide you with shredded corrugated cardboard purchased from the Central Wisconsin Center to help maintain some air flow which can reduce these odors. Just add a handful or two each time you add food scraps. (If possible, place the cover slightly to one side during the week so that air can circulate into the bucket.)
Return to Households
It was actually more convenient than saving my own kitchen waste – regular pick-up, large and clean bucket, no trudging out to the back yard to empty it.
Being an apartment dweller with little space to create or utilize compost, I appreciate the convenient service offered by Earth Stew that enables me to dispose of my food waste responsibly without adding it to a landfill.
