Personal research

Would anyone like to sign up for a neighborhood compost collection service? Pick-up and replacement of a provided 5-gallon bucket will go to feed a local worm farm. Vermicomposting. $10/pick-up or price dependent on pick-up requirements. I would like to start providing such a service on bicycle with trailer, would you like to have this service? Research only now, and then will plan accordingly!
