Choose a Bucket Size

It will always depend on the amount and kind of food you prepare and eat daily. Green Space offers 2 size options: the Standard Composting Bucket and Mini Composting Bucket.

Standard Composting Bucket (20L)

  • Diameter: 300mm | Height: 405mm
  • On average, a household of 4 will fill up one standard (20L) bucket which can hold 10-12kgs of food waste in 2 weeks time.

Mini Composting Bucket (16L)

  • Diameter: 300mm | Height: 332mm
  • A smaller household can choose the mini bucket (16L) which can hold 8-10 kgs of food waste.

Choose how many buckets you will exchange

How quickly you fill up your bucket and need to exchange depends on the size of your household. If you’re unsure, you can always start with a solo plan and upgrade to add more exchanges based on your needs!

  • SOLO (1 bucket per month)
  • DUO (2 buckets per month)
  • TRIO (3 buckets per month)
  • SQUAD (4 buckets per month)

Getting Started

Green Space will deliver to you your initial TWO (2) buckets and TWO (2) jars of Bokashi bran. You will receive your Bokashi Composting Manual via email or you may access the Resources page in the SoilMate app to read helpful articles!

How do I exchange?

Once your compost bucket is full, you can exchange it for a clean, empty bucket with us so you can continue collecting your food waste at home. Every bucket exchange also includes bran replenishment. There will always be enough clean and ready-to-use compost buckets for all subscribers.

Preparing for an exchange

  • Once your bucket is full, make sure that it is tightly sealed and keep it in a dry and warm area, away from direct sunlight. Continue collecting your food waste using your second bucket.

  • On the day of the exchange, get your full bucket and empty Bokashi jar ready. We will be taking your full compost bucket and your empty Bokashi jar, and we will leave behind a set of a clean compost bucket and a replenished jar of Bokashi bran.
  • If you require additional bucket exchanges, add your desired quantity under Bucket-on-Demand in the Book-a-Bucket page (PhP200.00 per bucket exchange).
