Composting food waste
for a sustainable Detroit

Subscribe to our weekly composting service. Help us reduce food waste and turn your food scraps into soil.

About Us

If food waste were a country, it's emissions would be the world's 3rd largest emitter, behind China and the United States.

We want to change that.

Scrap Soils is a composting non-profit dedicated to diverting food waste for a more sustainable Detroit. We run a weekly food waste pickup service for residents and businesses around the city. We strive to cultivate a sense of urgency and ownership around compost as an essential natural resource.
