Compost Crew

Compost Crew in Their Own Words

Compost Crew is a locally owned business based in Rockville, MD. We were founded in 2011 with the objective of rescuing unwanted food scraps from the landfill, helping to retain valuable nutrients by converting the food scraps into a rich soil amendment – compost.

The company has grown to serve thousands of homes, businesses, communities & local governments throughout the Greater Washington area & has composted over 20 million pounds of organic material.

We’re not just a food scrap hauler. We are a team of sustainability professionals on a mission to eliminate food waste and revitalize the Earth’s soil through clean & convenient solutions available to everyone!

Our mission is to protect the planet, reduce waste & build community wealth. We are committed to recovering compostable waste, reducing dependence on landfills & incinerators, & revitalizing our soils. We will never compromise on that commitment.

Earth’s systems are regenerative by design, supporting all kinds of life–from flora and fauna to us humans. We envision a world where all organic matter is recycled, as nature intended, rather than being lost or wasted.

  1. Keep valuable nutrients close to home.
  2. Have an unwavering commitment to protecting the planet & building community wealth.
  3. Constantly innovate to provide the most effective products & services to help customers achieve their zero waste objectives.

While composting food scraps has many benefits to the environment, some part of the benefit may be offset by the need to haul food scraps long distances. We process food scraps in four locations throughout Maryland, to process food scraps into nutrient-rich compost and help shorten distances.
