How It Works:

On Site Demo

Potential clients are first screened through a free, on-site demo. Kitchen set-up and current diversion practices are reviewed with any questions or concerns addressed.  From this screening, Wastenot develops a tailored green bin service that fits seamlessly with the client’s existing practices.

Collection Setup

40L black bins with step-lids are placed in office kitchens and near coffee machines. Clients pay a yearly rental fee for the bins. Client-specific signage is posted to educate participants. An employee lunch ‘n learn workshop (with live worm demo!) is offered free of charge as a training and engagement tool.

On-going Service

Servicing occurs on a weekly basis (usually Fridays) and includes switching out the dirty bin and bag for a fresh, clean bin and bag.

Castings Delivery

Clients receive 10% of the castings (i.e. worm manure – a valuable biofertilizer) produced from their foodscraps, either as personal-sized bags for individual employee use, or as a bulk donation to a local community garden.

Diversion Reporting

Clients receive quarterly diversion reports highlighting the amount of food waste recycled, biofertilizer produced and carbon emissions avoided through their participation in Green Bins Growing service.

10 to 75 employees = $40/week*
