About Us

Our Story

After realizing how difficult it was to manage a home compost receptacle, especially in small backyards, apartments, and condominiums, Matt set out to create a service that would allow anyone to compost at home without the hassle and maintenance of a compost bin. He started by collecting and composting food scraps just from friends and family. Today—still a small team--we service homes and businesses throughout the Triangle and Asheville.

We are very excited to bring the efforts of our members full circle by helping them share compost with local community gardens and urban farms, keeping this natural resource circulating in our community. We hope to see every household and business composting and diverting their food scraps from landfills and into compost for gardens. We are working hard everyday to help make that happen and invite you to join in the movement!
