Welcome to BioBag’s Community Heroes series! Each month, we will highlight community heroes that are making a difference in their communities and working to make their local environments cleaner and healthier.

This month, we are taking a look at Live Renuable!

Live Renuable is a composting service that offers food scrap collection throughout Broward, Miami-Dade, Tampa Bay, and St. Pete. BioBag Associate spoke to Kate with Live Renuable about the organization. Their interview is transcribed below.

What led you to start your composting operation?

Kate: After being disappointed in the lack of access to composting, our CEO set out to make a change. After composting at home for a while he began to realize that the best quality compost comes from community involvement. This inspired the Renuable Community Compost Program which now diverts food waste from over 300 residential and commercial members all throughout Broward, Miami-Dade, Tampa Bay, and St. Pete. 

Who do you serve and how can people get in touch with you if they want to start composting?

Kate: Residential memberships include a 5-gallon bucket with weekly or biweekly pick-up, we also offer a drop-off option. We service Broward, Miami-Dade, St. Petersburg, and Tampa Bay. People can sign up from our website at www.liverenuable.com. Commercial memberships include a number of 55-gallon bins with weekly pick-up. Email support@liverenuable.com with inquiries regarding commercial memberships. Keep in touch by following us on Instagram @liverenuable. 

How much organic material do you typically take in on a weekly basis?

Kate: We process about 30,000 lbs. on a weekly basis from our residential and commercial members.

Please give us 1 fun fact about you or your business.

Kate: We composted for the Torturtuga Music Festival for the past two years and are going to be composting for them again in 2024!
