The Illinois Food Scrap Coalition is a thriving organization with a membership base that includes a wide spectrum of stakeholders from community and government organizations, businesses, schools, institutions, service providers, compost processors, and individuals throughout the state.

Since its founding in 2012, the Coalition has realized many significant and impactful accomplishments and our work has grown substantially. In order to accomplish our initiatives and take food scrap composting to the next level in Illinois, we depend on the support of our members and partners.

Join your fellow stakeholders by becoming a SUPPORTING MEMBER or a SUSTAINING PARTNER, which will not only further the impact of this group’s initiatives, but also provide valuable exposure for you and your organization. Annual memberships run on a calendar year.
