Farmer Jon Scheffel and Nature's Little Recyclers were featured in DNA Info. Read all about Farmer Jon's compost pick-up business in Bike-Riding Bridgeport Farmer Launches Compost Collection Service.
"After about a month, he'll pick up the full bucket and deliver it to Nature's Little Recyclers, a worm compost farm in Back of the Yards, and swap it for a clean bucket that's ready to accept fresh and cooked produce, bread, grains, coffee grounds, tea bags, eggshells and shredded paper.
"The end result? Waste is diverted from landfills and turned into potent growing soil, thanks to thousand of worms who feed on bacteria from food scraps in a process known as vermicomposting. That nutrient-rich compost is sold by the pound or cubic yard to local gardeners and urban farms."
