Better Bin Compost and CompostNow Join Forces in Starving Landfills
Better Bin Compost joins forces with CompostNow to grow composting efforts in Cincinnati
Better Bin Compost, a Cincinnati-based composting service, announces that it has joined forces with CompostNow Inc, a Raleigh-based compost services company.
Combining resources, energy, and passions allows the combined business to expand composting efforts in Cincinnati and enables the ability to service more households, multi-family communities, and offices. Since joining forces in November of 2021, CompostNow has already expanded their service area to include the Amberley Village, Kenwood, Mariemont, Madeira, Madisonville, North Avondale, Northside, Pleasant Ridge, and St. Bernard neighborhoods. This is in addition to their current service area (Wyoming, North College Hill, Clifton, Columbia Tusculum, Hyde Park, Mount Lookout, Oakley, Norwood, Over-the-Rhine, East Walnut Hills, Walnut Hills, and Mt. Adams).
“CompostNow understands and values the uniqueness of each community they serve, and operates with a clear mission and people-first mindset,” says Olivia Wilmink, CEO Better Bin Compost. “Their willingness and ability to get things done, combined with their expertise in the industry, makes me excited to dig in alongside this team and continue our efforts of recycling food waste and rebuilding the health of our soil.”
Combined, members of the two businesses have diverted over 39 million pounds of compostables from the landfill creating over 13 million pounds of nutrient-rich compost for its members and community garden partners since 2011.
“We’re tackling the huge challenge of food waste and the loss of healthy soil, and it will take many different approaches to solve it,” says Justin Senkbeil, CEO of CompostNow. “I am excited to combine the momentum and energy of our organizations to further our collective mission of making our communities more compostable.”
With the addition of the Better Bin Compost team, CompostNow sits at 98 employees across 4 states and has already begun growing the Cincinnati-based team. They are actively hiring more team members to support growth and operations. Job descriptions available at www.compostnow.org/jobs.
