Composting your waste makes you greener and more eco-friendly

Many people love the saying, “Compost Happens.” But there’s more to it than that. Food waste left to rot in a landfill produces methane gas, not compost. This methane gas actually plays a key role in the depletion of our ozone layer and global warming. When you compost you reduce methane production—which lessens your environmental impact—and produces usable, natural plant fertilizer.

Compost Return: Helping close the food loop

We take your food scraps, turn them into soil, and give you finished compost in return. Twice a year we deliver your earned compost straight to your doorstep for use in your garden. Don’t have a garden? No worries. Compost Nashville can donate your earned compost to a local farm, community garden, or organization in need of compost. How’s that for closing the loop?

You can compost more than just your apple cores and carrot tops

Your fruits and veggies are an integral part of the compost process but these guys are just the beginning. We also accept compostable take-out containers, compostable “plastics,” paper-based products, soiled paper towels/napkins, waxed paper, and cardboard. We even accept meat and dairy products. You might be surprised at what all you can compost!

We do it right

Compost Nashville partners with The Compost Company, the only licensed processing facility in Tennessee, to ensure that your waste is properly composted and once again becomes life-nourishing soil for our planet.
