Help us convert a landfill to a state-of-the-art compost facility for MA. We are raising money with Seaside Sustainability to build a public regional facility in partnership with the Town of Manchester-by-the-sea.  This project would help secure the future of regenerative waste management and be a model for other towns to follow. Learn more and donate at GoFundMe.

Get to Know Your Composter

The Dirt


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 20 trucks, we are dedicated to collecting food scraps from residents, schools, supermarkets, colleges, and more, all across eastern MA. 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.
