Garbage to Garden, founded in Portland, ME in 2012, provides residential and commercial curbside composting service and zero-waste event services throughout the greater Boston area and Southern Maine.
As the nations most subscribed to curbside composting service, we have been recognized nationally for our efforts in reducing food waste and private companies and municipalities from across the US reach out to us weekly to learn from what we are doing.
Our service is simple, participants receive a 6-gallon bucket to fill with compostable materials. They place the bucket on the curb each week on trash day, and we collect it and swap it out with a clean bucket and, if requested, a bag of finished soil.
Check us out on our website, FaceBook, and Instagram to learn more about our services and the community we have created.
In August 2016, Garbage to Garden opened a satellite operation in Massachusetts. We are hiring a community outreach coordinator to help build the movement in the greater Boston area.
This individual will report directly to the Community Outreach Director and will be responsible for identifying promotional opportunities, implementing local door-to-door and tabling promotional efforts, and establishing relationships with retail partners and volunteer organizations.
For the right candidate there will be opportunities for additional work and responsibilities as the operation grows.
