Compost Crew has grown a lot as a company over the past year. We’re now on the road seven days a week, with seven trucks serving our nearly 5,000 customers in the DMV region from Baltimore to Woodbridge, Va. and from Reston, Va. to Bowie, Md. ‒ and everywhere in between. We have a growing number of businesses and organizations who are now recycling their food scraps with us, in addition to our residential customers.
We greatly appreciate the trust that you place in us, and we want to give back something more than just compost to our loyal customers ‒ and to others who are interested in learning more about us. So starting today, we’ll be using this blog to provide more frequent updates on our business and helpful tips that you can use.
In our most recent customer survey, we heard you’d like to learn more about the full lifecycle of food scrap recycling, and how others are doing it. The blog will be a source for more in-depth information than we can currently share on our social channels. Some of the topics we plan to cover in future posts include:
- Our Customers: the most important part of our business, we work with organizations large and small throughout the DMV; you’ll learn more here about their stories and how and why they work with us.
- The Composting Process: people are interested in learning more about what happens to your apple cores, walnut shells and chicken bones after you deposit them in your Compost Crew bin; so we’ll share more from our experts, including best practices for composting and other zero waste tips you can put to use.
- Why it Matters: if you’re reading this, you’re probably already on board with us ‒ and we thank you! But the vast majority of organizations and homes in the DMV area are not composting today. We’ll help to explain why it’s vital and, for those who want to, equip you with the tools to convince your neighbor Pete or your Aunt Martha to join us.
We’ll also share a few more tidbits on our company, so you can learn the names of our trucks and find out what makes our team tick. We hope you’ll come back to our website for future updates, and we welcome your ideas for other subjects you’d like to see covered here. Feel free to drop us a comment below.
