Founded in 1992 by eco-enthusiast Patrick Geraty, St. Louis Composting is the regions largest compost producer. Together, our nine composting facilities process over 1,000,000 cubic yards of green material annually – more than half of all yard waste generated in St. Louis County. In addition to composting yard trimmings gathered by the area’s major waste haulers, we receive and compost material collected from landscapers and homeowners. We transport and process over 300 tons of organic food waste each week, keeping our landfills free of this organic debris.

St. Louis Composting serves as the headquarters of our family of companies and eco-service providers. Our team is made up of St. Louis Composting, AgriCycle (St. Louis), Total Organics Recycling (St. Louis), Organics Distribution (St. Louis), and Kansas City Composting (Lee's Summit and Belton).
