The issue of waste disposal is a major one. From offices that burn through reams of paper to pastry shops swimming in eggshells, it can break your heart to see businesses trashing what could be reused or recycled.

Thankfully, there’s a way to avoid some of that pain. Neighborhood Compost offers commercial compost programs with multiple benefits to your business. Here are six reasons why you should consider commercial composting for your New Jersey business.

Boost your business profile

Neighborhood Compost’s commercial composting program helps your business’s bottom line by letting you claim tax cuts for being environmentally conscious. Don’t underestimate the power of being environmentally friendly to bring in more customers or clients, either.

Minimum effort, maximum reward

Our commercial composting solution is full-service. We provide the compost collection bins you need and swap them out for clean ones at each pickup. You don’t even need to be there when we grab it; all we need is access to where it’s kept.

We also weigh the contents of the containers to provide you with sustainability reporting and valuable metrics, so you know how much waste is being diverted from landfill. Don’t worry, there’s no minimum waste requirement.

Easy composting instructions

We make it easy for you and your employees to compost at your business. We use what we collect to nourish our farm, including as feed for livestock, and sort all compost by hand after collection.

However, you do need to be careful about what you add to your compost bin since only organic matter can go in them. For example, that pesky sticker on your apple needs to be disposed of separately.

Check out our composting guide for more details on what is and isn’t compostable. We also provide easy-to-understand signage concerning most items' compostability for you and your employees to reference quickly.

Service only when you need it

You can freeze your subscription for up to a month if you aren’t generating as much, and we’ll come around when you’re ready.

Or if you're celebrating a special occasion with your colleagues and suspect you'll produce more waste? Add a pickup to your schedule. Just let us know!

Knowledge is power

Part of your subscription to Neighborhood Compost’s business composting plan is educational services. From virtual or in-person educational sessions to taking a tour of our farm, our goal is to help you experience the cycle in which your "waste" can feed our soil systems and cultivate healthy crops organically.

It’s a great way for you and your employees to learn more about why composting at work is so beneficial on both the local and global levels. It’s also an easy way to learn more about other sustainability practices you and your employees can implement in both professional and personal settings.

Local service with a global mindset

Commercial composting can have a tremendous and immediate positive impact on the planet, including the mitigation of climate change. It might not seem like composting pizza boxes after an office party can have such an effect, but even this small step brings us closer to the goal of a sustainable future for all.

How to get started

Whether you run a small- or large-scale kitchen, manage an event venue, oversee a municipality or more, we can set up a composting plan for your needs. Contact us today to learn more about commercial composting in New Jersey!
