About Little Green Bucket

Little Green Bucket is Albuquerque’s only residential food scrap collection business. Founded by Brad Weikel in 2018, we seek to build a community of local residents committed to diverting their food waste away from landfills and putting it to good use in local soils instead.

Where does your food waste go?

100% of the food waste we collect ends up at Soilutions’ compost facility in the South Valley.  It is then recycled into nutrient-rich compost products and sold back to local farmers and gardeners. More about Soilutions, in their own words:

Soilutions provides products, education, and services that support sustainable relationships between people and their environment. We do this through three divisions – our Compost Facility recycles green waste into compost and mulch that protect and nourish the earth; Food Waste Management makes food waste recycling happen by providing recycling services and education; and Adaptive Terrain Systems provides experienced, hands-on consulting services on erosion control and stormwater management. It’s all about creating long term health and prosperity in our community. It’s about stewardship.
