Giveback Program

Twice a year, CCKC offers finished compost (nutrient-dense soil for your garden) to all of our curbside + bin swap subscribers. This compost is created from the food scraps YOU recycle, so we know it’s the good stuff (aka Nature’s Black Gold).

How to Claim Your Compost

Curbsider?

Reserve your bags of compost through your CCKC Portal during our spring & fall giveback windows. You will receive an email when the order form is live with further ordering details.

Bin Swapper?

Follow us on social media (@compostcollectivekc) or check back on our website for updates on when you can claim your bags of compost OR attend our biannual Volunteer Bagging Events to take home a free bag.

I have my bags of compost, now what?

Now for the fun part! Apply your compost to potted house plants or outdoor garden beds for a boost of fertilizer and added water retention. Make sure to use it sparingly though – compost is extremely nutrient-dense, so a little goes a long way. Spread the compost throughout the top 2 inches of topsoil to prevent overdoing it.

2024 Volunteer Bagging Events

Help our team bag up the fresh finished compost then take home a free bag of compost for your much appreciated assistance – your garden will thank you!

Anyone & everyone is allowed to join this family-friendly compost party! Feel free to come down for one event, or all five events, for free drinks & free compost at Urbavore Urban Farm (located at 5500 Bennington Ave in KC MO).
