Greener Bay Compost is Green Bay’s premier compost company, serving residents in Northeastern Wisconsin with the Green Bay metropolitan area’s best (and ONLY) Residential Compost Pickup & Drop-Off Services, plus sales of our finely sifted, premium compost.

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 for our local gardeners and farmers!




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

STEP ONE STEP TWO STEP THREE STEP FOUR
We provide you a clean, Food Safe, five gallon bucket (with lid). You remove the lid from your bucket, 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 bucket. You provide your full/semi-full bucket (with lid) to us, in exchange for a new, clean, Food Safe, five gallon bucket (with lid).

THE TOP 7 REASONS CITED FOR SIGNING UP WITH US:

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 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!
