You will receive 3 boxes each delivery, and your payment includes everything…. the custom designed boxes, delivery, pickup, sorting & composting.
You can take as long or as little as you like to fill each box, without a monthly subscription fee, and you are not locked into any fixed contracts.
You’ll be prompted to order your next set of boxes on your second courier pickup, and then you’ll be prompted again every third courier pick up after that, to ensure you always have a complete station.
This automation is important, because if you run out of boxes you will be left with the same problem you had in the first place… compostable cups going to landfill!!
Need extra Boxes?
You can order extra boxes at any time: If you have another area within your location that would benefit from a second station, OR you are filling boxes quickly and want some spares, simply log into your account dashboard to order a second station and we’ll send you an extra set of 3 boxes.
Simply use the QR code on the back of the box to order your courier pickup.
Do I book each box pick up separately?
Short answer…… Yes you do, and we’ve made it easy!
Longer answer….. You’ll usually find that the boxes are full one at a time. Each box has a unique QR Code that is linked with both your account, and the return courier label number, so you will need to book each box pickup using the QR Code or details on that particular box.
Our service is a nationwide service, using New Zealand’s existing courier network.
You are only ever charged when a new set of boxes are ordered.

Inside the Box
What measures do you take to keep contaminants out of the box?
We sort every box that comes back to us! We don’t want contaminants in the soil any more than you do.
Of course we hope that people will do the right thing and only put compostable packaging in our boxes – but we are also realists, and unfortunately some people just don’t.
How can I encourage my customers to stack their cups efficiently?
You can get the most cups in your box if cups of the same size are stacked in the same chute, however cup combinations are different for everyone, so we created an environmentally friendly option for our customers. (Environmentally friendly because its made from FSC Certified paper & compostable)
With your first set of boxes we will send you a sheet of paper labels you can attach to your box lid if you wish, and you can always ask us for more sheets if you need them. (See pic. below)
Reducing our carbon footprint
To enable our service to be accessible to workplaces & cafes etc. nationwide, who otherwise would not have the option to easily get compostable packaging to a composting facility, we need to utilise the already existing courier network.
It’s all about balance and transparency.
We want to be totally transparent about our service, and we are working right now with a company who is helping us to put things in place to measure and offset the carbon footprint created by our activities (including the use of couriers) so that we will be carbon neutral, and our dream is to be carbon positive in the future.
