Zero Waste Providence's compost working group meets every other Wednesday at 9:30 AM at 3 Sisters restaurant in Providence. We welcome newcomers! Please click "get in touch" below.


Our mission is to make composting accessible to all Providence residents. We are advocates of hyper-local composting in cities, and believe in keeping the rich resource of compost accessible to the neighborhoods where the food scraps are created. Members of our group are currently working on several neighborhood pilot projects.

Earth Appliance Organics runs a free drop-off program in Smith Hill.

Harvest Cycle Compost runs a citywide compost pickup service and a depot in Federal Hill, with a new site in South Providence coming soon.

Other residential compost pickup programs operating in and around Providence are statewide hauler Rhodeside Revival and Boston-based Bootstrap Compost

We are happy to offer advice and resources to new composters and those entering the application process for small and medium scale compost facilities in Rhode Island.
