We Are Currently Closed
Compost Cats has served as the official compost service for the City of Tucson since 2015 and through the City’s Food Cycle program, any business can sign up for this service to prevent organic material from going to the landfill. Unfortunately, we stopped accepting material in March 2019 to facilitate a transition from San Xavier Co-Op Farm to the Los Reales Landfill in closer partnership with the City of Tucson. We expect to re-start the operation in the Spring of 2020.
At the moment, the best way to divert your compostables from the landfill is to take them to a local community garden. Small amounts of organic waste can be taken to the UA Community Garden on 1400 E Mabel St.
To request more information, please contact Compost Cats' Program Manager, Dr. Ilse Rojas, or call 520-621-5653.
Compost Cats Needs Your Help!
Compost Cats is the only organization in Tucson that provides both composting services to the broader Tucson community, while also offering critical career-based experiences for future industry professionals. However, in order to continue providing these services and more, we need your support and the support of the Tucson community! Much of the equipment that has served to elevate the mission and vision of Compost Cats for the last several years is in critical need of replacement, so we have started a crowdfunding campaign to begin raising the funds necessary to continue our operations in the most effective way possible and to continue the reliable intake and processing of organic waste from as many local businesses as possible.
