Have you been thinking about composting but just can’t swing it where you live? Good news! Now there is way to keep your food scraps out of the landfill without undertaking your own composting operation! Jon Scheffel has launched his Healthy Soil Compost service, which offers customers two ways to return food to soil, for a small fee.
1) Bring your food scraps to the South Loop Farmers Market every Thursday 4-8p. (Until October 8).
2) Sign up for year-round at-home pick-up service
Drop-off Fee Info: Starter kits of $7 with 2-gal or 5-gal containers (or use your own container); Drop-off prices per volume of material: 2-gal = $4 and 5-gal=$7. Anything less, please make a donation to the service.
Interested? Ways to contact Jon:
