Helping Philadelphia Households and Businesses Compost Since 2009
In 2009, Tim Bennett wanted to compost. Unfortunately, he was living in a second story South Philly apartment and wasn’t sure how to get started. After talking with some friends at dinner about it, he realized he wasn’t alone. It was a light bulb moment. He put $100 in a bank account and Bennett Compost was born.
Since then our team and process has continued to evolve. Currently, Bennett Compost picks up from over 5,000 households and businesses every week, keeping over 70 tons of material out of the landfill every month.
Our owners and 15 full-time employees believe that composting should be simple, and good, microbial-rich soil should be readily available.
