Matt Tomasulo puts composted soil from CompostNow in his home garden.
RALEIGH, N.C. -
With landfills across the country running out of space, the environmentally conscience have moved to composting -- using decomposing food and yard waste to make rich fertilizing soil.
But composting can be time consuming and messy.
That is where Raleigh-based CompostNow comes in, making weekly visits to picking up compost bins from homes and businesses filled with food scraps and other trash, and leaving customers with a fresh one.
"We started with houses -- that started growing really fast," explained CompostNow co-founder Justin Senkbeil. "And we learned that businesses want to compost as well."
The company will pick up compost bins from your home weekly for a cost of $25 per month for two bins. Businesses can arrange the service for $24.75 per week for a 38-liter bin.
