Please note that Epic Renewal has reached its current compost processing capacity, and is no longer accepting new members at this time.

We make composting for your home simple!

It’s as easy as collecting your scraps in one of our containers, and swapping with us weekly for a clean one.
We offer two options: we’ll pick it up at your home, or you can drop it off weekly with us in Cypress Park.

Pick Up services start at $30/month.

Drop Off service starts at $15/month.

How It Works

Epic Renewal provides clean, compostable waste collection containers right to your door. We deliver and pick up the containers, or you can drop them off with us. We do the dirty work, you do good.

Upon joining, members receive a 3 or 5 gallon collection container and a welcome kit. Simply collect your compostable waste in the container throughout the week, and choose one of the following:

Pick Up Service

Leave the logistics to us, and enjoy a hassle-free weekly exchange.

Simply leave your full container in an easy to access location outside of your home on your pick up day, and our drivers will exchange it for a clean one.

Drop Off Service


Exchange on your own schedule, for a decreased membership rate.

Exchange your full container whenever’s convenient for a clean one directly with us at our Highland Park location, located where the I-5 and 110 cross.

Our containers can be easily be stored indoors. So long as they are sealed tightly, they don't smell, leak, or attract pests.

Pick Ups begin within 1-2 weeks after sign up, and you will be notified of your collection day via your welcome email, which you'll receive within one business day of signing up. Live in a larger apartment building where pick-up gets tricky? We’ll gladly work with you and your building management to find the right spot for your container.

Pricing & Container Size

We've found that our 3-gallon container is usually a good fit for homes of 1-2 people, while the 5-gallon tends to be a better fit for homes of 3+, or frequent home cooks.

We're always happy to adjust to find the right fit for each of our customers. We can easily update your online membership to accommodate a different size or additional containers.  Just drop us a line!

What Can I Compost?

Good to Include
Our general rule is if you can eat it, we can take it! That includes some items that cannot typically be composted in your backyard.

  • All fruit and veggie scraps
  • Leaves and plant trimmings
  • Coffee grounds, filters, and tea bags
  • Egg shells and dairy products
  • Meat, fish, and eggs, including small bones
  • Nut shells and nut butters
  • Bread, pasta, rice, and grains
  • Cooked foods such as leftovers, cooked meats, and oily foods

Compostable food packaging

  • Paper towels and their paper tubes
  • Paperboard packaging and serveware clearly labelled “compostable”
  • Soiled napkins
  • Bamboo and palm serveware/cutlery
  • Wooden toothpicks, popsicle sticks, and chopsticks

Leave Out
A great tip for serveware, packaging, and cutlery is that unless it clearly says “COMPOSTABLE” on it, leave it out.

Non-Compostable Food Packaging
(Unless clearly labeled “compostable”)

  • Plastic cups, cutlery, and containers
  • Coated paper boxes, plates, and wrappers
  • Styrofoam takeout containers

Best Practices

  • Minimize excessive liquids when possible - we can take them, but if you have the ability to strain beforehand, it's super helpful for us!
  • Tear up any paper-based packaging before throwing it in the compost.
  • If possible, cut large items, like whole fruit, bread loaves, etc., into smaller pieces.
  • If something can be recycled, please do so! That includes shredded or whole printer paper, bank checks, clean cardboard and brown paper, clean paper bags, and more - if it’s clean, it can go in the recycling first.
  • Please note that we cannot accept any materials outside of your Epic Renewal container. If you need an additional container or to adjust your membership, just let us know!
  • If you’re unsure if something can be composted - don’t hesitate to drop us a line and ask!
