    Our Customers Include:

    “When Massachusetts implemented mandatory composting for all restaurants and food retailers several years ago, we at the Fruit Center Marketplace thought it could be a heavy burden until we started doing some research. Once we did, Black Earth was the best choice. Overall, they have been excellent. Composting is now a seamless part of our everyday routine. We separate out our organic waste, and Black Earth takes care of the rest. They are helpful and attentive to our questions and concerns and make the whole process of composting easy.” - Fruit Center Marketplace owner Michael Mignosa
