“CompostNow has been a partner to develop, implement, and improve our compost programs at Red Hat Tower. Their reporting has proved quite beneficial in growing pride and excitement in the program as well as celebrating our environmental impact.”
Red Hat
Plants, animals, people – we all rely on soil for our survival. Unfortunately, nutrient loss and erosion mean that our soil is becoming dependent on industrial fertilizers and harsh pesticides.
In addition to solving the problem of nutrient loss in our soils, composting creates local jobs, combats climate change, and supports healthy food systems for future generations.

“This is an amazing service.  Putting out our food waste and getting clean bins back is just the beginning of why CompostNow is so awesome. We can get compost back for our garden in the spring OR send it to a local farm!”
Rebecca C.
“We used CompostNow for two years while living in an apartment in Atlanta. Their online platform was super easy to use. Easy to cancel a pickup, change pickup locations, order a fresh bag of compost, etc. This is the future. And it's here now!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to worry about smells or odor from the bins?

This is a common concern, however we’ve designed our service to prevent that. Our bins come with airtight lids so no smell will come through. Also, we deliver a fresh, clean bin each week!

How much of my household waste can I compost?

You’d be surprised! About 60% of your waste stream (after recyclables are removed) is compostable, and you’d be shocked at just how much you can compost! Because we accept harder-to-compost materials like meat, dairy, bones, and compostable plastics, our bins fill up pretty quickly. We encourage you to give our two-week free trial a go and if you still think it’s not a good fit, you can cancel at any time!

What if I don't need my finished compost?

Good news, you can choose the way you close the loop! Members have the option to request their earned compost, or share it with a local farm or garden through our Garden Partners program. Sharing earned compost is a great way to invest your community and support the urban agriculturalists providing access to local, healthy, equitable food.

For businesses composting with us, your earned compost is shared with community gardens.
