step 2: Collect & drop off

The fun part! Collect your household food scraps at home making sure you’re following the compost hub guidelines. Visit the Compost FAQs page if you have any questions. Once you’re ready to drop off, visit your hub, weigh, record, and drop your scraps in the open bin.


step 3: Support your hub

Each hub is a unique community ecosystem. Your individual hub will operate on its own calendar of volunteer events and compost pile turning days. When you join a hub you’ll receive info on how to best support your compost hub in addition to providing food scraps. You can also follow @lacompost on social media to stay up to date on special hub events.

Farmer’s Market Drop Offs:

We’re proud to partner with several LA Farmer’s Markets to offer a compost drop off at the market. You don’t need to sign up to participate, simply collect acceptable compostable items in a reusable container, bring them to the farmer’s market of your choosing, and weigh and record your scraps at the table.
