Mill has partnered with USPS to provide an environmentally friendly way to keep your Food Grounds in the food system by turning them into food for chickens.
There are two ways you can send your Food Grounds to Mill — by scheduling a USPS pickup in-app or by dropping off at a USPS drop off location.
Scheduling a USPS pickup
On the Mill app home screen, select Send it and select Schedule pickup.
Check your address (be sure to double check details like your apartment number) You can also add any special instructions that might be helpful for the postal worker to find your package (like “in the mailroom”). If everything looks good, press Confirm Pickup.
In most cases USPS will pick up your package the very next day (except Sundays). It’s best to put your box in the pickup location (e.g. on your doorstep or in your mailroom) the morning of your pickup. Food Grounds are meant to be food for animals, after all, so you may attract an unwanted pest if you keep them out too long.

USPS Drop off
USPS offers thousands of drop off points nationwide. You can drop off your box at your local Post Office, or at thousands of participating National Retailers such as CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Costco, and more.
Visit here to find a USPS location near you. Select “National Retailer” or “Post Office” from the Location dropdown.
If no one has come to pick up your grounds by the end of the pickup day, just schedule a new pickup in your app by selecting Send it from the home screen and then Schedule pickup. If USPS misses your pickup a few days in a row, contact us and we’ll escalate it to your local post office.
