What can't I compost?

When in doubt, throw it out!

I signed up, now what?

Congrats! After you successfully sign up for our exclusive membership you should receive a confirmation email from Green Box Compost. Then, visit us in store and show your confirmation email to one of our Sales Associates. They will then give you your first clean and ready to use Green Box and you are on your way to composting with ease. 

Can I sign up for this membership if I can’t make the Wednesday drop off day?

Unfortunately, no. If you cannot make it to our store for the designated drop off window from 11am to 6pm, this program will not be the right fit for you.

Can you skip weeks if you are signed up for the program?

To skip weeks with this membership you will cancel service on the Green Box website and restart service once you are ready to start again. If you cancel service, you will need to return your Green Box to Green Life Trading Co.

When is the deadline to sign up for this membership?

This membership has rolling enrollment and you are welcome to sign up at any time to begin service.
