Compost this! 

Who picks up compost and who sells it in Indy?

Who (if anyone) picks up compost? And, who (if anyone) sells it?



I’ve got answers for whoever (if anyone) wants to compost, use compost or get involved with the movement toward diverting food waste from the garbage.

Earth Mama Compost is an Indy-area curbside compost service provider. For a small fee, Earth Mama picks up compost on a weekly or bi-weekly basis for residential or commercial customers.

GreenCycle is on a mission to keep as much waste as they can out of Indiana’s landfills and to provide homeowners with quality landscaping products. They offer pick-up or delivery of locally produced compost from four locations (Indianapolis, Zionsville, Noblesville or Avon).

You can also buy small batches of compost from vermicomposter Castaway Compost and from a few other farmer’s market vendors. Or, of course, you can find the bagged stuff at any garden center.

If you’d like to be part of a new multi-stakeholder initiative to address Indiana’s food scrap challenge, be sure to follow the Indiana Food Scrap Initiative. They are holding a meeting Wednesday at the Indiana Recycling Coalition’s office to explore how to perform a waste audit and discuss the measurement tools, models and opportunities for more food to be diverted from disposal.
