A Conscientious Composting Company

"I love creative companies, particularly if they're doing something positive for the environment. CompostNow is both! It is an urban compost pickup service based in Raleigh, N.C., that easily allows residences and small businesses in several cities to recycle organic and compostable materials at home or work. All you have to do is sign up and get a bin to collect your food scraps. They pick it up once a week and turn it into soil for you. Knoxville is turning into a very green town and this would just help jump start the people who have always felt composting would take too much time."

—Jessie B., former Knoxville resident now a producer in North Carolina

Note: Knox Composts does offer a similar service on a smaller level.
