Carter’s Compost is Traverse City’s neighborhood, bike powered, kid driven kitchen scrap pick-up service. I started this business in April of 2012 and now have 90 customers in and around TC. I use pedal power to help my neighbors reduce their waste, save landfill space and grow awesome garden soil.
I compost the food waste and then, once ready, give the finished dirt to my customers so they can use it in their garden to grow yummy veggies in the neighborhood.
Compost is not complicated but sometimes people are just too busy. They don’t have time to turn the pile or to worry about Carbon and Nitrogen ratios or to wrangle worms.
We are dedicated to building community by making composting super easy for our Traverse City neighbors.
