Bootstrap Compost of Malden has expanded its services to Berkshire County where it recently launched weekly pickups. Founded 10 years ago, Bootstrap serves over 4,000 sustainability-minded households in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island who lack the space, time or expertise to compost the material themselves.

Bootstrap collects organic material from homes then transports it to community farms and composting facilities in the communities that it serves to be transformed into a nutrient-rich soil amendment. The finished compost is then returned to the company's clients. Information: bootstrapcompost.com.
