  • Who we are

    Let Us Compost started in 2012 when Kristen and her family moved to Normaltown in Athens, Georgia. They fell in love with the culture, warm people and thriving small business community - the only thing missing was a curbside composting service! With just pickle buckets borrowed from Blind Pig Tavern, a 1976 blue truck, and our first clients (a hair salon, soup shop and a massage therapist) we started composting! After three years of curbside composting in our truck, improving our compost recipe, regular trips from Bulldog Towing, and a brain drain of staff to Ultimate Frisbee, composting toilet farms, prescribed grazing, co-op incubator and South American animal sanctuaries, we decided to "step off the gas pedal" and haul compost by bike. Our community composting friends like Bennett Compost, Zero to Go and Tilthy Rich helped us, and we started composting at an Athens treasure - "West Broad Farm." We love Athens, helping people compost and are proud that our clients have composted 925,000 lbs of food scraps and transformed it into soil.

    We raise project-specific funds for DIY urban composting at West Broad Farm, using bicycles and salvaged materials as much as possible in our creations. This blog was created to share voices of the people who haul compost by bike all over Athens! They are doing awesome, interesting things and this is a venue for them to share their thoughts with you. Enjoy!
