Buying Our Compost — Returning the organics to the soil

Black Bear Composting is proud to offer Black Bear Compost. Screened to a 1/2 inch, this compost made from local food scraps, leaves and greenwaste makes an outstanding soil amendment that improves soil health — naturally.

Black Bear Compost is US Composting Council's Seal of Testing Assurance certified, which you can learn more about here.

Three ways to buy our compost:

  • Delivery by Dump Truck - We are happy to bring our compost to you in our small dump truck, which holds up to 8 cubic yards (CY) of compost. We charge $25/CY, plus tax and $3 mile for delivery.
    Call or email us and we can firm up the details.
  • Pick up at our Facility - If you have your own truck or a trailer, stop on by and we'll load you up. We charge a flat $35 per pick-up truck and $25/CY for trailers.
    Please see our location page for hours and directions since our location isn't always GPS friendly.
  • Small Batch Delivery - Need just a little compost and don't have a pick-up truck? We're excited to announce our small batch delivery service! If you're close to one of our collection routes, we'll load up three of our collection bins to deliver you a "short" cubic yard*. The cost is $45 delivered.
    Call or email us and we can firm up the details.

*Technically, three of our bins when added together are 7 gallons shy of a full cubic yard.
