We envision a city with healthy soil, meaningful & well-paying jobs, and people empowered to grow & share good food.
Instituting composting at a big special event like the AZA conference was a complex task that involved many hands and cooperation across departments. Schmelly’s provided invaluable customer service that allowed us the make sure we had tight systems in place for every step of the process, from selecting the right compostable serviceware to thinking through day-of logistics.
Between the helpful guidance from Schmelly’s staff and having all hands on deck within our internal teams, we successfully diverted over 2.5 tons of waste from the landfill. This was a big sustainability victory for our organization this year!- Jamie Broussard, Audubon Nature Institute
We’ve been composting since the first day of being open, for over six years. It is important for us: our customers value that and it sets the right tone for our new coworkers. After our original composting company became unreliable, we switched to Schmelly’s. We are very satisfied with their service – the pickups are on time; the communication around special events/holidays are on point; and, when we have any questions or requests, they are quick to get back to us. Having Schmelly’s as a partner is one of the easiest part of running my business!- Miki Mendler Avenue Cafe
Schmelly’s has been providing compost services for us at The Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine for the past few years, and our experience has been outstanding. As a center that teaches healthy cooking to the community, it’s important for us to model practices that not only are good for the body, but are also good for the environment at large. Introducing composting has been a wonderful way for us to cut down on our waste, especially as we have so much organic plant materials that can be used for the better to grow more food rather than ending up in the landfill!- Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine
