We are a worker-owned, ecologically driven business filling a void in our local food system. We currently provide food waste collection and plan to sell finished compost in Summer 2024.

Our facility features five aerated static compost bunkers, set to produce more than 780 cubic yards of compost yearly. We expect finished compost to be available for purchase in July 2024. 

Building Star City Compost has been a 5-year process, including multiple iterations of design for the facility, drafting an operating agreement to establishes us as a worker-owner business, and completing all steps to obtain a permit with the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality. It's been a tremendous undertaking to get us to the point we are today. Click Here to Learn More About Our Story.
