Below is our normal recycling policy, but during the coronavirus pandemic we’re taking some extra safety measures to protect our members, our CSA host families, and our employees. For the time being we will not be receiving your used CSA boxes to recycle. Please mulch with them, compost them, or store your winter clothes in them, but keep them at home. Thanks!
In every aspect of our business, we strive for more sustainability. With your help, we’d like to extend that effort to the many delivery boxes we use each week.
Our members are invited to return their clean, empty Red Moon Farm CSA boxes to us for reuse or recycling each week. Boxes sturdy enough for reuse will carry a CSA share to another family the following week, and damaged boxes will be returned to the earth in the form of compost or mulch in the fields.
There are two ways you can help. When you pick up your share, (1) transfer your share to your own box or bag, leaving the cardboard box behind, or (2) bring the box back with you the following week. Our driver will pick up the boxes and make sure they’re put to good use.
Please note: We can only accept clean boxes, free of any food residue. In addition, we can only accept our own Red Moon Farm CSA boxes. We are not equipped to recycle or compost cardboard or other materials from other sources.
