Sign up for a pickup subscription to begin weekly food scrap pickups. Our Team will drop off your HCS Indoor and Outdoor buckets, a compost can & cannot sheet, a handful of complimentary compostable bags within the week.
Collect your compost (food scraps) in your indoor bucket which we reccomend keeping in your kitchen for easy access. Routinely deposit the compost from your indoor bucket into your outdoor bucket in compostable bags.
Once you have collected a weeks worth of compost in your outdoor bucket, leave it outside of your home (visible from the street) on pickup day before 9am for HCS to pick up and deliver your compost to a greenburgh drop-site.
*Spring sale* - all curbside pickup plans are FREE for the first month!

Composting is an environmentally friendly practice that reduces food waste in landfills, cuts down on plastic bags, lowers your greenhouse gas footprint, and supports natural fertilizer production.
Since we began, HCS has been working hard to make sure our operations are fully carbon neutral and that we have an overall postive impact on our local and global environment. In addition to helping local communities divert food waste away from landfills, HCS also pays to offset our carbon footprint for every mile we drive and are in the process of joining “1% for the Planet”.
HCS was originally created and is currently managed by Jude Joerger, Max Schapiro, and Ben Wan. At the time, they were a group of Hastings High School students craving to make an impact on their town, but more importantly the environment. Coming from families of avid composters, the three noticed a bottleneck within the process of producing food waste due to having to drive to the local drop off site to dispose of it. Realizing others face this same challenge and potential drawback within the highly beneficial process of composting locally, their idea came to fruition. As Jude, Max, And Ben are currently attending college , Jonny Amaral and Oliver Fuchs, current HHS students, are managing the labor-oriented tasks from Hastings.
