How We Work
Our goal is to help divert as much food waste away from landfills and incinerators as possible. That means designing a scalable model that can accommodate a high volume of food waste while allowing us to operate as sustainably as possible.
That’s why, in northern New Jersey, we’ve chosen to work with WM’s CORe facility in Elizabeth.
The facility’s relatively small footprint, proximity to major population centers, and ability to accept up to 500 tons of food waste per day make it an obvious choice as we work with households, businesses and municipalities to divert their food scraps.
At CORe, WM turns the materials they receive into a proprietary soup-like ‘slurry’ product that is then transported to a local wastewater treatment plant where it is converted into renewable energy!
Meet the Team
A New Jersey native and lifelong compost fanatic, Isaiah graduated from Quinnipiac University in 2017 and spent three years in the wealth management industry before launching Green Bucket Compost.
“I started this business because I wanted to help everyone live a more sustainable life. We can’t all buy electric cars or install solar panels, but we can reduce our waste by separating organics at their source.”
Head of Operations
Also a New Jersey native, Kyle brings his expertise to ensure Green Bucket Compost’s operations are up to snuff!
“I don’t come from a composting background, but once I realized how much of our waste is organic I knew I had to do something. I couldn’t be happier to help our clients reduce their waste and live greener lives.”
