While we work with businesses around Tucson and compost at local events, we are currently unable to do residential pickups. If you would like your food scraps picked up, Scraps on Scraps is a local business that does just that!

If none of these times works for your schedule, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a message on our Facebook Page, as the Compost Cats staff is sometimes on the farm at other times than indicated too!
We only accept cash and checks made out to the University of Arizona. WE DO NOT ACCEPT CARDS.
Please keep in mind that the Compost Cats operate under weather-permitting conditions! Please do not come to the farm for a pick-up if it has rained heavily in the past two days. For safety reasons, we can not work when our site is too muddy. Thank you for your patience
