SUBSCRIBER WASTE DIVERTED FROM LANDFILL SINCE AUGUST 2021


19,748.08 lbs.

Our service, which is essentially a Waste Management service mixed with a Recycling operation, is modeled after similar services in other parts of the country, the intention of which is to reduce organic waste by diverting it from landfill and into our compost piles, where it will be upcycled into a product infinitely more useful and valuable.

Per 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 are not okay with that, especially whereas much of this material still has massive nutritional and vitamin value.

Accordingly, we have come into existence to tackle this problem head-on, by removing material from the waste stream and giving it a second life, as something that will help create new life in our local communities!

THE TOP 7 REASONS CITED FOR SIGNING UP WITH US:
  1. Feel bad/guilty about throwing food waste in the trash.
  2. Don’t have the time or space to compost.
  3. Don’t create enough waste to justify composting at home.
  4. Don’t have the right mix of materials to successfully compost.
  5. Have tried to compost at home, but failed.
  6. Have a disability that makes it difficult or impossible to compost.
  7. Live in an area with an HOA that doesn’t allow composting.

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 “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 curbside 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!
