Greener Bay Compost is Green Bay’s premier compost company, serving Northeastern Wisconsin with our Award-Winning Residential and Small Business Compost Pickup & Drop-Off Services, plus sales of our finely sifted, premium compost.

If you’re looking for an Easy, Clean, Convenient, and Green way to reach your sustainability and waste reduction goals and reduce your carbon footprint, then look no further!

Our Compost Pickup and Drop-Off Services, which are essentially Waste Management services mixed with Recycling operations, were designed to help our environment by diverting as much would-be organic waste (such as food scraps) from landfill as possible and composting it.

Through a process known as “hot composting,” which, unlike landfilling, produces no methane (a toxic greenhouse gas more than 20x more potent than carbon dioxide), we convert all the organic waste we accept into a nutrient-rich soil amendment known as compost, which not only nourishes plants of all kinds, but makes our soil healthier and sequesters carbon from our atmosphere.

According to the Wisconsin DNR’s (Department of Natural Resources) 2020-2021 statewide waste characterization study, approximately half of what ends up in our landfills is (or could have been, at some point) compostable, and we find that to be unacceptable, hence why we do what we do.

SO HOW DO THESE COMPOST PICKUP & DROP-OFF SERVICES WORK?
It’s actually very simple!

STEP ONE STEP TWO STEP THREE STEP FOUR
We provide you with clean, Food Safe, five gallon buckets (with lids). You remove the lids from your buckets, revealing sawdust, wood shavings, etc. at the bottom (which we provide to absorb moisture and help control odor). You place any materials found on the Acceptable side of our List of Acceptable and Not Acceptable Materials into your buckets. You leave your full/semi-full buckets (with lids) outside for us on a schedule, in exchange for new, clean, Food Safe, five gallon buckets (with lids).

7 OF THE BEST REASONS TO SIGN UP WITH US:
  1. Reach your sustainability and waste reduction goals, by diverting as much of your organic waste as possible from local landfills.
  2. Reduce your carbon footprint, by having us compost your organic waste, instead of trashing it, so it produces no methane (a toxic greenhouse gas more than 20x more potent than carbon dioxide).
  3. Fight “Climate Change” on a very local level and reduce the impact of it globally.
  4. Earn a cubic foot of our finely sifted, premium compost for every 500 pounds of acceptable waste you provide to us, through our Waste Reduction Rewards Program.
  5. Reduce the amount of trash your household produces by 20-50% or more (which means less money spent on trash bags and fewer trips to the curb with your trash bin).
  6. Impress your friends, family members, and co-workers with your commitment to helping our environment.
  7. Avoid the hard work, loss of free time, and frustration (not to mention the risk of complaints from neighbors regarding rats and offensive odors) that typically comes with trying to compost at home.

THE MAJOR BENEFITS OF COMPOSTING:
  1. Reduces methane (a potent greenhouse gas) emissions from landfills.
  2. Upcycles what would have been waste into a valuable soil amendment.
  3. Sequesters carbon from our atmosphere, thereby lowering our collective carbon footprint.
  4. Enriches soil, via the addition of organic matter and nutrients, which results in better looking, better tasting food and reduces the need for chemical fertilizers.
  5. Helps soil retain moisture, which results in less need to water plants.
  6. Reduces soil erosion by improving soil structure.
  7. Encourages the production of beneficial bacteria and fungi in our soil.

A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER & CEO

Cory Groshek, Founder & CEO of Greener Bay Compost

I started Greener Bay Compost in July of 2021, after having been composting and gardening in my own backyard since the summer of 2016, because there was no compost pickup service available in the Green Bay metropolitan area. Upon realizing how great I felt knowing my own food waste was going back into my garden beds, rather than into a landfill, and witnessing the amazing things compost does for plant growth, I just had to share this amazing process with my neighbors!
