Rust Belt Riders is a subscription service that composts food scraps, including items like meat and dairy products, that can't be composted at home.
Participation in the drop off program requires you to sign up on the Rust Belt Riders Drop Off page. Members are asked to pay $10 per month for unlimited access. At signup, members receive a 4-digit code in their welcome email that can be used to open the padlocks securing the lid of the collection container.
The Rust Belt Riders collection bins will be adjacent to the trash corral in the northeast corner of the Bay Lodge parking lot, west of/behind Bay Lodge. The bins will be available 24/7/365 for collection.
An additional drop off location at Reese Park is coming soon!
The Rust Belt Riders website provides more information about the drop off service, how to subscribe, and other services they provide. The Rust Belt Riders FAQ page answers more general questions, and the Better Bin database shows what can and can't be composted through the service.
Additional questions can be directed to Rust Belt Riders by email or by phone at 216-800-4651.
