Learn a little more about Community Compost's business:
Community Compost is a new, local small business, providing affordable pick-up of compostable food scraps from residential homes in the Rogue Valley.
Instead of unused food scraps accumulating in our land-fills, we collect them, and bring them to a local farm, where the materials are cultivated into re-usable compost, and eventually re-introduced to the soil.
By providing this service, Community Compost reduces your footprint on our local environment, and harnesses the energy of your food scraps for the nourishment of the soil on our local farms. This energy helps grow the delicious foods produced and consumed here in the Rogue Valley.
Community Compost connects you to your local food source, so you can be an important part of the sustainable agricultural practices in our region.
