Waste is really just a resource that's in the wrong place. So far, our bikes have diverted over 815,000 pounds of organic material from the landfill.
Compost enriches soil by providing nutrients that are otherwise be depleted from constant use. We've helped create about 203,600 pounds of compost and donated it to over 30 local farms and gardens to grow more food.
Landfills are the second leading producer of methane, a greenhouse gas 22 times more potent than carbon dioxide. We've diverted over 125 tons of methane emissions by keeping organics out of the landfill.
We've saved almost $22,000 for local growers across Austin. By donating organics and compost to local urban farms and gardens, we're providing a service that gives back to our city.
We've saved over 55,000 gallons of fuel using bicycles instead of trucks. Don't think a program of this size is possible on bicycles? Read more about how we do this in our About Us section.
Our Pedallers expended almost 4,000,000 calories on the job. Burning fat instead of fuel, we keep Austin healthy and beautiful.
