Founded in 1992 by eco-enthusiasts Patrick and Rebecca Geraty, St. Louis Composting has blossomed into the region’s largest compost producer. The mission of this husband-and-wife team is to help make the world a little greener and reduce landfill waste by producing compost of the highest quality.
Together, our five composting facilities process roughly 500,000 cubic yards of green material annually – more than one-third of all yard waste generated in St. Louis County. In addition to recycling yard trimmings gathered by the area’s major waste haulers, we receive and compost material collected form curbside green waste recycling programs.

St. Louis Composting is based in Valley Park, Mo. It is also home to a 26-acre composting facility which carries our full line of STA-certified compost, topsoil and soil blends and a variety of mulches. Our neighbors in the Metro East are similarly served by a 52-acre composting facility located just west of Belleville, Ill. A third facility on four acres in Maryland Heights, Mo. is a transfer station for neighborhoods in North and West St. Louis County and accepts yard waste including trees, limbs and brush. In the City of St. Louis, we operate a processing center and retail outlet on a 10-acre site off Hall Street in the Baden neighborhood. And finally in 2011, following our acquisition of Organic Resource Management, Inc., we added a fifth location in unincorporated North St. Louis County.
