We Compost is a free recognition program that promotes businesses and institutions that participate in a commercial compost program. Our goals are to highlight entities that compost and encourage more people to patronize businesses that are managing their food scraps responsibly.

Participating businesses and institutions receive a  window decal to place on their front door to communicate to customers that they compost.
