Over 100 Yards in 60 Days
Compost impacts communities. You might be asking how a simple soil amendment makes a real difference but take a few minutes to look into the power of waste diversion and you’ll see how much effort and education matter! In the past 60 days Atlas has served our towns and cities in a greater way through compost donations. More than 100 yards of our Atlas Compost has been donated to projects of varying sizes. Through these donations we’ve been able to enrich the members of our communities with both high-quality product and education. We’ve taught practical ways to both use compost and close the waste loop in their homes. alongside of the product contribution.
Through partnerships with cities, local businesses, and events we’ve spread the love in four different states!
