Legislation and Advocacy

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), organic waste constitutes a significant portion of the waste stream, with approximately 30% of municipal solid waste comprising organic materials like food scraps and yard trimmings. As landfills become increasingly strained, finding effective solutions for diverting organic waste is crucial. Legislative and advocacy efforts play a critical role in achieving our mission of making composting free and accessible across the United States. Our organization is committed to driving systemic change by actively engaging with communities and stakeholders to create an environment conducive to widespread composting adoption.

Let’s Go Compost continues to advocate for the creation and support of decentralized, community-owned composting hubs, strategically positioned to serve local neighborhoods. Additionally, we actively work with municipalities to promote the importance of empowering their local residents to take charge of their organic waste and contribute to a more sustainable waste management system. We advocate for the integration of composting services into municipal bulk collection programs, making it convenient and accessible for households, restaurants, and local businesses to participate in composting without additional logistical challenges or at a higher cost than traditional landfill. In fact, The Institute for Local Self-Reliance highlights that convenient access to composting facilities significantly influences participation rates.


When we work together, we can shift the narrative around composting from being a niche activity to an integral part of sustainable living, accessible to every household in the United States.
