We service houses and apartments throughout Charlotte-Mecklenburg. Every member receives a bin for their food scraps, and we take care of the rest! Our 5 gallon bins are the perfect size to keep in the kitchen, and our 24 gallon carts work just like your familiar recycling and landfill carts.
Twice a year, in the spring and in the fall, we celebrate our members and the zero waste movement with a soil party. We enjoy the changing seasons, some good food, and hand out beautiful nutrient-rich compost to our amazing members. We can't wait to see you there!become a member
We take the guess work and the mess out of composting.
"Food and fiber" is an easy way to remember. If it was edible, it goes in. Napkins, flowers, egg shells, and coffee grinds are all welcome, as well. Please no charcoal, animal/human feces or urine, or excessive amounts of liquids. Visit this page for a comprehensive list of what can and cannot go in your bucket.
We have drop-off stations conveniently located throughout Charlotte:
• Recover Brands at 1518 Bryant St. located near the loading dock.

Yes, absolutely, as long as you empty your materials into our bin when you put it out for collection.
Place it outside your door or at the end of your driveway the night before your pick-up day. We will empty it between 6 AM and 7 PM on your scheduled day.
Our bins are airtight, so as long as you keep the lid on, you shouldn't experience any smells. And each week, your bin will be freshly lined.
