About The Compost Co-operative


The Compost Co-operative is a worker-owned business. Our customers are valued investors in the community. We are committed to building with others a local economic infrastructure that is socially just, economically sustainable, and environmentally sound.

our mission

Driven by racial and environmental justice, the worker owners of the Compost Co-operative haul food scraps for residential and commercial customers in Greenfield and Whately. As topsoil erodes along with living-wage jobs, we build ownership and opportunity among people coming out of jail and prison. We believe that diverting compostable materials from the waste stream and back into the soil through the process of composting can be an effective local response to inequality and climate change.
