CompostNow and Compostwheels Join Forces
On October 11, 2017, Compostwheels LLC, an Atlanta-based compost pick-up service, announces that it has merged with CompostNow Inc, a Raleigh-based compost services company. By combining resources, energy, and passions it will allow for the combined business to service more households, multi-family communities, offices, restaurants, and more in Atlanta and beyond.
Together the two businesses have diverted over 5.5 million lbs from the landfill since 2011. Additionally, Compostwheels and CompostNow combined have delivered over 528,598 lbs of compost created by their members to their farm and community garden partners.
How did we get here?
CompostNow, based in Raleigh, was founded in 2011 by Matt Rostetter, who was joined in 2012 by co-founders Justin Senkbeil and Dominique Bischof.
“For us, it has been exciting to see the community that Compostwheels has created and it has been gratifying to see how this movement is growing in Atlanta.” Says Justin Senkbeil, CEO CompostNow. “We see the strength of Atlanta’s food system and are thrilled to continue to be an integral part of it. I am excited to see our teams come together around a shared mission to help make our communities compostable.”
Compostwheels, based in Atlanta, was founded in 2012 by David Paull who brought on his parents (seasoned entrepreneurs) over the next couple of years. The Paulls have lead and managed the business for the past 5 years.
“It has been the goal for many years to tackle this problem of lost nutrients in our food system in a big way.” says David Paull, CEO Compostwheels. “We knew that in order to do that we needed the right team aligned on this impactful vision. Our combined companies are in a wonderful position to take this work to the next level. CompostNow is on its way to becoming the national go-to for organics recycling solutions and we are thrilled to embark on this journey together.”
The combined business looks to both rapidly expand the number of households, restaurants, and offices they service in Atlanta and the Triangle and increase outreach, education, and advocacy in the community.
The ultimate goal is to divert as much food waste from landfills as possible and help local farms and gardens build the best possible soils.
