Apartment Composting

Waste from apartments is more likely to end up producing harmful methane and contributing to climate change than waste from houses. The reason - most apartment dwellers don’t have access to composting, so their food waste is going straight to a landfill. In 2018, the EPA estimated that in the United States more food reached landfills than any other single material in our everyday trash. Living in an apartment doesn’t have to mean that you can’t do your part to reduce your environmental impact and live more sustainably. Next Use offers convenient, affordable, and user-friendly apartment composting solutions designed to make it easier for you to reduce your carbon footprint. Instead your waste is put towards its next use as valuable resources improving soil and plant health!


Composting in Apartment Buildings Made Easy

Compost More

We offer a larger menu of items that can be composted at an apartment, so items like meat, bones, food oils, and certified compostable serviceware can be composted with us without worry.

Clean Bins Every Time

As part of our apartment composting services we will replace your full compost bin with a clean, empty one so there is no mess and no hassle.

Hassle Free Pickup

We pickup directly from your door. If building access is required, we will coordinate with building management to acquire an access code and to comply with all rules and regulations of the building.

Perfectly Sized Bins

We provide a 3.3 gallon bin which we have found to be a great size for composting at an apartment. It fits under the sink or on top of the counter without being an eyesore and does not emit any odors.
