"Black Earth Compost was founded in January 2011, in Gloucester, MA. Originally a one man, one truck, Cape Ann company, it has steadily grown to become the leading full service compost company in New England. With over 30 trucks, we are dedicated to collecting food scraps from residents, schools, supermarkets, colleges, and more, all across eastern MA and RI. We are also the only vertically integrated company that composts the material too, returning it to customers and selling it in garden centers across Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. Whatever your organic waste collection or garden soil needs, we are your one stop shop." From the Black Earth Compost website.
