The most "poopular" compost in the Pacific Northwest

Purchasing Zoo Doo


Available Amounts

On the first weekend of April and June, we will be hosting a bulk compost pickup sale! This year, look for changes that have been made to improve access to Zoo Doo and get it in your gardens sooner! There will no longer be a Fecal Fest lottery, instead, please use the link (available May 1, 2022) to book your pickup, pay with a credit card and receive directions to the zoo for pickup.

Cancellations or changes must be made at least a week before your scheduled pick-up to receive a refund.


Sale Starts May 1, 2022

The May sale is for buckets only, no Truckloads. The June sale is for buckets and truckloads.

Come back to this page on May 1, 2022 to sign up for the May and June sale.




Please note that we will be offering the following pickup sizes only:

  • 50-gallons - $40
  • 100-gallons - $70
  • 5’x4’ pickup trucks (300-gallons) - $90
  • 6’x5’ pickup trucks (400-gallons) - $100

Once containers are purchased, they will be filled with Zoo Doo and made available for pickup at the zoo on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. The dried and screened Zoo Doo is shelf-stable, and makes for an incredible addition to small gardens, potted plants and indoor plants.

Less than 2 Gallons
