Chris Broadbent rides his bike through Kalamazoo’s Vine neighborhood, towing a trailer loaded with buckets. He pulls up behind an apartment building, takes a bucket up the stairs to a back porch, and swaps it for one filled with food scraps. He’ll make a couple more pickups around the city this afternoon. The peels and trimmings are destined for a bin in his backyard.
