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. $33/CY, plus tax and $3.25/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, call to schedule an appointment and we'll load you up for $34/CY. Our loader has a 3+CY bucket, so please let the operator know how many cubic yards you are interested in.
  • Small Batch Delivery - Need just a little compost and don't have a pick-up truck? If you're close to one of our collection routes, we'll use four 48-gallon (or 3 65-gallon) collection bins to transport a "short" cubic yard* to you for delivery. While we use the bins to transport the compost, they are too heavy to move, so we empty them off the back of our truck and keep the bins. The cost is $54 delivered, tax included.
    Limited to only Residential Subscribers for March - May
    Call or email us and we can firm up the details.
*Technically, we are 7-10 gallons shy of a full cubic yard depending on which size bins we use.
