CompostAVL – A Premier Compost Service in Asheville, NC
CompostAVL is a curbside pickup composting service serving the community of Asheville, North
Carolina. Many individuals that have an interest in composting may simply not have the time to
do it themselves, and this is where we come in. We will pick up your compost for you, so you
can still do your part in serving your community without any hassle or time management
conflicts. Here, we will look at the environmental benefits of composting, challenges to
composting in North Carolina, as well as how becoming a CompostAVL member not only
supports the environment but also your local community.
Environmental Benefits of Composting
Composting is when organic material that is decomposed is properly preserved and returned to
the soil, acting as a natural fertilizer. It has many necessary nutrients and organisms that aid in
the growth of plants, as well as enhances the structure of the soil, making it easier for that soil
to retain an accurate amount of nutrients, air, and moisture. In addition, because compost does
hold quite a bit of moisture, this assists in combatting erosion, decreasing amounts of runoff,
and cultivating healthy vegetation. It also is beneficial in creating better downstream water
quality. This is due to the fact that compost holds on to certain pollutants, including
phosphorus, grease, oil, fuels, heavy metals, pesticides, nitrogen, and herbicides.
Composting is one of the best ways to lower your carbon footprint today and do your part to
benefit the environment and your community. Our compost service in Asheville recognizes that
over 30% of what individuals toss out can be composted. Not only does composting keep items
out of landfills and decrease emissions of methane, but it also reduces the need to use chemical
fertilizers on the soil.
Composting Challenges in North Carolina
Our compost service in Asheville recognizes that there are certain challenges when it comes to
composting in western North Carolina. For example, the large black bear population alone is
one challenge that faces many homeowners since the odor emitted by compost piles may draw
the attention of nearby bears. That is why CompostAVL makes composting in Asheville simple.
All you need to do is simply place your compostable items in a bin, and our curbside pickup
service will make sure they are properly utilized.
Becoming a CompostAVL Member
CompostAVL is a community compost service in Asheville that will not only put your compost to
good use for the sake of the environment but also your local community. When you become a
Compost AVL member, a designated part of the membership fees we receive is given to schools
in the community. We will even provide you with a compost bin and once it is full, we will offer
you a fresh one to keep any odors, or bears, at bay. We do the picking up and the dropping off
so that you can do your part even if you do not have the time, space, or tools to compost
