Bringing Change to the San Gabriel Valley 

Workshop: The Elements of Great Compost

Compost Culture is offering many sustainable services to benefit the lives of citizens of South Pasadena and San Marino. Learn more about what we do, who we help, and how we work every day to promote positive change.

*These services are only available for residents of South Pasadena, San Marino, and Pasadena California


Limited to South Pasadena and San Marino residents

Our Curbside Organic Waste Pickup Service will pick up your compostable food scraps on a weekly basis—right from your home. We provide you with a free kitchen bin for easy collection; you’ll simply leave the bin at a designated spot in your front yard on your assigned pick up day. 


Helping The Community

With this initiative, our goal is to create educational opportunities for the citizens of South Pasadena. With the right resources and knowledge, we can shift the habits of our community to environmentally friendly ones. We will be setting up workshops and creating videos to teach you how to compost and help the environment.

The Farmer's Market 

Reinforcing our Commitment

We are currently at the South Pasadena Farmer's Market, where we collect food scraps for nonresidents and give away free compost on the first Thursday of every month. You can find us in the Free Speech Zone by the Walking Man statue. Feel free to come and chat with us or our lovely volunteers to learn more about what we do and how you can get involved.
