Why Compost?

Did you know that most of what you throw away is not in fact garbage, but a highly reusable resource? Composting keeps those organic materials in production, keeps them out of landfills and instead uses them to revitalize and fertilize poor soil for a cleaner, healthier community!

How it Works

Farmer Pirates Compost Crew provides you with 1 or more sturdy 32 gallon tote(s) on wheels with compostable liner/s. You fill them with (almost) any food waste you produce. FP Compost Crew empties them on an agreed schedule and leaves you with fresh, clean liners.

Where it Goes

The Farmer Pirates operate a compost site on Buffalo’s East Side. We manage and maintain the compost piles by mixing your food waste with different carbon sources to create rich “finished” compost to be used on local urban farms and gardens.

Areas we Serve

Buffalo, Kenmore, Tonawanda, Amherst, Williamsville, Cheektowaga, Lancaster, Depew, Hamburg, West Seneca, Orchard Park, Lockport, Pendleton, and East Aurora.
