At Greener Bay Compost, we offer Green Bay, Wisconsin’s ONLY Curbside Compost Pickup Service, currently serving residential customers in both east and west side Green Bay, as well as Allouez, Ashwaubenon, Bellevue, De Pere, Hobart, Howard, Oneida, and Suamico.

Through this service, we take your organic, would-be waste (such as fruit and vegetable trimmings, spent coffee grounds, and plain paper products), which would normally end up in a landfill, and turn it into a nutrient-dense soil amendment called “compost,“ through a process known as “hot composting.“

The process of “hot composting“ involves layering and/or mixing materials known as “browns“ (which are rich in carbon) and “greens“ (which are rich in nitrogen) into large piles, turning said piles at least once every week or two to make sure they have enough oxygen, and adding water as necessary to prevent the piles from drying out.

Tiny microbes then work very hard, over the course of several months, to break down the materials inside these piles, causing the temperature inside the piles to rise to upwards of 120-150 degrees or more for several weeks, thus killing any undesirable “weed” seeds in the piles and deterring any pests that would otherwise want to dig around in them.

While this process may seem slow to some, we believe it is worth every second, because it results in a product known as “finished compost,“ which does amazing things for gardens, flower beds, and agricultural operations. When worked into existing soil, not only does this wonderful product provide plants the nutrition they need to not only grow but flourish, but it also prevents soil compaction and helps to maintain soil moisture, so plants don’t need to be watered as often.

This “finished compost“ is then redistributed into our local communities (within the Green Bay metropolitan area). And the best part? Our subscribers here at Greener Bay Compost get first dibs on it, through our amazing Rewards Programs, before it is ever offered for sale to non-subscribers!

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!
