(WFRV) – This local business is helping make the neighborhood a little greener one bucket at a time.

Greener Bay Compost founder Cory Groshek joined Local 5 Live on Friday morning to talk more about how his company is making a big difference in the community.

Greener Bay Compost takes organic/food waste that would normally end up in a landfill and turns it into nutrient-rich soil also called compost, which is great for plants, flowers, fruit trees, and so much more.

For customers wanting to help Greener Bay Compost make a positive change, they can subscribe to receive a food-safe 5-gallon bucket which they then fill up with any organic waste that they may have.

Greener Bay Compost then picks up the bucket and adds the waste to its compost piles which then is made into the nutrient-rich soil.

If you want some of this soil for your garden this spring, you are encouraged to subscribe to the program soon.

Groshek shares that customers who have been in the program for at least six months will get one pound of soil back for every 15 pounds of organic waste they put into the bucket.
