The Big Wonderful
what our customers are loving about Scraps.
our model relies on partnerships. we are proud to collaborate with the following partners:
Alpine Waste & Recycling
If Scraps is a "last-mile solution" for composting, then Alpine is all the other miles! Our model is all about adding compostable material to the existing hauling/processing infrastructure, using our bikes. We partner with Alpine customers to use their existing bins and pick-up schedules to get the material out to the compost processing facility, A1 Organics.
BioBag has provided Scraps with a tremendous amount of support, from advice, to free bins, to free bags, to low-cost bins & bags, to shares on social media, and more. We are SO grateful that they believe in our mission of bringing more, innovative composting options to Denverites!
The Alliance Center
If Scraps' founder hadn't worked at the Alliance, Scraps might not be alive today. There was a key "ah-ha!" moment at the AC where Christi realized that places like the Alliance - diverting upwards of 80 percent of its waste to recycling and composting - STILL often have plenty of excess space in their compost bins at pick-up time! The discovery of this slack resource was a key ingredient in the Scraps recipe. And now, the Alliance is our flagship partner!
This non-profit advocates for more, better & safer cycling options in the Mile High City. Whether you're a bike commuter, recreational cyclist or bike-based business (we're all three!), or just someone who believes that a sustainable city needs more pedal power, BikeDenver is the group to join! Help advocate for a bikeway system that truly serves our growing Denver community.
Scraps will continue to support BikeDenver as we grow our pedal-powered services!
Denver Food Rescue is improving food equity & access in Denver, one bike haul at a time. This is another pedal-powered nonprofit that Scraps loves to support, one that's inspired us as we grow as a small company. DFR connects food donors (like grocery stores) to local nonprofits (like GrowHaus) who run "No-Cost Grocery Programs" in their neighborhoods, and brings them rescued food - by bike!
If pedaling for compost isn't your thing, consider volunteering with DFR to rescue food, or become a member!
Front Forty Foods
Front Forty is a new concept for bringing fresh, healthy, local, eco-conscious food to the market. Each dish is made from wholesome, locally-sourced ingredients, and packaged with completely reusable jars, bamboo utensils and cedar planks (take them home or leave them for Front Forty to reuse!), and/or compostable containers. The flagship Front Forty "vending machine" is located at Stanley Marketplace in Stapleton, where $1 from each sale of its reusable tote bags will be donated to Scraps (and we're selling some too)! We are grateful and thrilled to have Front Forty as a supporter & friend!
