Keep Charleston Beautiful
As Compost Rangers earliest collaborator, KCB helped us prove that we have something to believe in. With their support and access to specialized equipment, our community and school gardens are continuously clear of litter. Together, we get our hands dirty in order to keep the City of Charleston clean and beautiful for everyone to enjoy. Check out all the ways you can get involved with KCB.
The Green Heart Project
Without help from The Green Heart Project, us Rangers wouldn't be able to do what we love most - teaching kids! Part of GHP's mission is to build "garden-based experimental learning projects and school garden programs to educate students", which lines up with our philosophy of hands on education. We've embedded compost lessons into GHP's year round curriculum that has gotten kids excited about rethinking what they throw out. This opportunity has also given us the physical space to manage compost piles. Learn about how you can get involved with GHP.
This collaboration has opened so many doors for us that we couldn't be more grateful. The Charleston chapter of SMART Recycling US is an expert hauling service for businesses, restaurants, non-profits, and residents. We've partnered with them for several events to pick up the food waste that we collect through our Waste Recovery System. Instead of bringing it to the landfills, they take all organic matter to the Bees Ferry Composting Facility. That's what we call smart! Read more about their work.
Food Waste Disposal
We are so excited to be working with this hyper-local compost hauling company! Not only do they work incredibly hard to divert commercially produced organic waste from the landfill, but they are also a major distributor of Eco Products - single-use compostable materials like plates, bowls, forks, spoons, knives, and everything else.
