Welcome to CFA’s newest member Blue Earth Compost! Blue Earth Compost is a food scrap collection service for residents and businesses in Connecticut.

They turn food waste into usable, nutrient rich soil that can be used to grow to grow fruits and vegetables. They can collect food waste from residents, businesses or even special events to help everyone go zero waste with no hassle. Here is more about them from their website:

Food scraps are resources, not waste, and they don’t belong in the trash.

Food is the number one material sent to incinerators and landfills in America. We throw out 40% of our food every year along with all the water, hard work, and natural resources used to grow it! Instead, you can put them to work to create nutrient-rich compost that makes plants, flowers, and especially food, grow healthier, stronger, and tastier.

At Blue Earth Compost, we are inspired by the idea that people want to do the right thing by their families, their communities, and their planet – they just need better systems and processes in place to accomplish this goal. As such, our mission is to make composting easier and more accessible in Connecticut, so we can improve our air, water, and soil. Since 2013, we have worked with homeowners, renters, and commercial entities, big and small, to achieve this goal.
