Greener Bay Compost is Northeastern Wisconsin’s premier compost company, serving the Greater Green Bay area with our Award-Winning Residential and Commercial Compost Pickup Services, our area’s only food-waste-focused compost facility, and year-round sales of our nutrient-rich, contaminant-free compost.

If you’re looking for an Easy, Clean, Convenient, and Green way to recycle your food scraps and associated organics, meet your sustainability goals, or reduce your “carbon footprint,” then look no further!

Each week, we divert thousands of pounds of food scraps and associated organics from our local landfills, with the help of our hundreds of Compost Pickup Service subscribers, and transport them to our compost facility in the Town of Lessor, where we convert them, over the course of several months, into a nutrient-rich soil amendment known as compost, which we reward our subscribers with and make available for sale to the general public, year-round.

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 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), with BPI-certified compostable liners inside. You remove your bucket lids, revealing wood shavings at the bottom of your buckets (to help control odor and absorb moisture.) You place any materials we consider Acceptable inside your buckets. You place your full/semi-full buckets in an acceptable/agreed-upon Bucket Swap location, and we swap them out for new, clean buckets weekly, every other week, or every four weeks, depending upon which of our services you’ve signed up for.
Step One Step Two Step Three Step Four



7 OF THE BEST REASONS TO COMPOST WITH US:
  1. A desire to divert your food scraps and associated organics from our local landfills (thereby saving us all taxpayer money, delaying the need for us to build another landfill in the near future, and preventing the release of toxic methane into our environment)
  2. A desire to be a superior steward of the Earth and an amazing role model to your loved ones (particularly the children in your life).
  3. A desire to avoid having to do all the “hard, dirty, smell work” of composting, while still experiencing all the benefits of it.
  4. A desire to earn high-quality, 1/4″ screened compost for you or your loved ones’ lawns, gardens, houseplants, etc., through our various Rewards Programs
  5. A desire to identify where most of your food is wasted and to cut down on the amount of trash you produce, by up to 50% or more (thus opening the door to major savings on your grocery bills and garbage disposal)
  6. A desire to support (and ensure the survival of) the only food-waste-focused compost facility in the Green Bay metropolitan area
  7. A desire to support a small, local, family-run business doing big things to make our a community a better, more sustainable place to live, work, and play

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!
