Send your food scraps with CNY Green Cycle and cut down on your trash. You can cut your trash by around 40%. This will reduce the amount put in our landfill and make it last longer. When we put organics into the trash the decomposition processes slows down, see below: Did you know?
We are not a big company. We are a local startup to #1 benefit the Earth. So help us help our local, Oneida County, soil and environment. If you sign up with Wheelock for your trash service you are also choosing local, to support local.
Taking food out of the landfill/composting helps to stop Methane from being released into our atmosphere, which is created more in a traditional landfill when organics/food scraps are mixed with other trash. It also helps replenish natural benefits for the Earth.
We supply your bi weekly compostable bag for CNY Green Cycle for the recycled 5 gallon bucket with the service charge. All you need to do is fill it full of all your compost/food scrap collection if you live in Clinton, New Hartford, or Utica or some areas in New York Mills and Whitesboro.
By removing food scraps from your garbage you are eliminating the messiest and smelliest parts of your trash. Which also takes up to 40% of your trash can. Also with our service we spray and wipe your bucket at each pick up.
Sign up with CNY Green Cycle can take around 50% of the things you put into the trash. So switching your trash pick up to once every other week or once a month pick up to balance out this decrease and pay less for trash removal.

If something is in your fridge and will go bad soon, put it in the freezer. So you can enjoy the food later. This saves food waste.
Cook in larger quantities and freeze them or split the food up for the week. This saves you on buying different ingredients for different meals. And if you freeze them you can still have variety. This saves money at the grocery store and waste from the landfill.

At first this seems impossible, but when you think about it we bag our garbage in plastic and mix it in with other non compost materials. When you think of it that way it makes more sense...
