Discussing all things compost in Colorado!

What is Composting?

Hello to all you awesome humans out there! Here is a short video of what we do at Rocky Mountain Composting. We specialize in residential curbside compost pickup. We will take your food scraps and yard debris to the composting facility here in Colorado. A1 Organics runs this amazing industrial composting farm in Keenesburg, Colorado. Here they take all of the compostable materials delivered by our team and turn it into rich compost that can be used in our Colorado landscapes.

Composting is the ultimate local way to recycle compostable materials like paper, newspaper, cardboard, leaves, twigs, yard debris, tissues, toilet paper rolls, paper towels and rolls, and food scraps. This is recycling at it's best, no chemical processing – compost is created using nature to break down these materials into the desirable dark compost that gardeners love to feed their gardens. Unlike recycling, which often is sent overseas, our compostable materials stay right here in Colorado, making composting one of the best ways you can help make a difference.
