Frequently Asked Questions

What can I put in my bin?


"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.

Where are your drop-off stations?


We have drop-off stations conveniently located throughout Charlotte:

• Free Range Brewing, Noda at 2320 N Davidson St. located on the back patio.
• The Innovation Barn at 932 Seigle Ave. located on the front of the building
• Lenny Boy Brewing at 3000 S Tryon St. *Open during business hours only.
• Wooden Robot Brewery at 1440 S Tryon St UNIT 110 located in the parking lot across the street from the Wooden Robot.

Can I use a different bin?


Yes, absolutely, as long as you empty your materials into our bin when you put it out for collection.

What do I do with my bin on pick-up day?


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.

Will my bin smell?


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.
