Rogue Produce: Community Compost. Rogue Produce has created a smart solution for our region’s lack of options when it comes to managing the valuable resource of our food scraps: Community Compost. We provide a weekly residential pickup of food scraps. Instead of taking the scraps to the landfill, we donate them to small local farms or local businesses, where they are used to create compost. By signing up for our Community Compost service, you reduce the waste in our local landfill and provide a great benefit to local farmers.
