Frequently Asked Questions

How is Evolv different than regular composting?

Evolv’s bins can handle the widest range of possible food scraps including cooked meats, oils and dairies, unlike traditional composting that requires separation. Evolv’s bins and bran also allows for faster composting, turning food scraps into nutritious compost as quickly as possible. Other companies may try to accept the same amount of inputs, but cannot in the same low-odor, airtight and convenient fashion.

How does Evolv impact the environment?

When food scraps are thrown into the garbage and wind up in landfills, they produce methane gas, a gas that is 21 times more harmful to the environment than carbon dioxide. Wasting food or food scraps by allowing them to get into landfills also wastes the resources that went into producing the food. Evolv hopes to help close the door on food waste and get vital nutrients back into food production through widespread composting that is convenient for everyone. Food production requires many resources including chemical fertilizers. We can reduce dependence on artificial fertilizers by using natural created, nutrient rich compost.

How does Evolv contain the smell?

Evolv’s bin requires less work than traditional composting piles. Traditional pile management requires exposure to oxygen, heat monitoring, and turning. Evolv’s bin takes away those concerns for residences and businesses as it is airtight and once bran is added it does not require monitoring.

What can Evolv compost?

  • All food scraps, including meats, oils, and dairy
  • Spoiled paper products and cardboard
  • Yard waste
  • All other certified compostable products
