Commercial Composting Services

Helping Houston and Austin businesses turn
food waste into compost

For years, composting has been relegated to being primarily the domain of gardeners and environmentalists. 

At Moonshot, we’re bringing this incredibly beneficial process for diverting food waste from landfills out of backyards and into the corporate world. 

Our commercial composting services empower Houston businesses to:

  • reduce your ecological footprint
  • give back to your local community
  • demonstrate to your stakeholders your ESG commitment.

Contact us today to take your Moonshot.

Are you in Austin, TX? As well as Houston, we also serve Austin businesses. Learn more about our commercial composting services in Austin.

Facilities We Serve

Restaurants

Houston has one of the most diverse food scenes in the world, but what every restaurant shares is food waste to the tune of half-a-pound per meal, waste that can be turned into a valuable commodity.

Offices

Take all that unclaimed food your coworkers leave in the office fridge and help your company contribute to local sustainability efforts. 

Schools & Colleges

There are 14 major institutions of learning in and around Houston, with many more satellite campuses and K-12 schools beside. Waste diverted from all those cafeterias, dorms, and apartments can do a lot of good in the community.

Hospitals

Houston’s medical footprint is immense, and the amount of food waste produced by the industry is equally large, and an enormous opportunity to reduce strain on landfills.

Many other types of operations can take advantage of our services as well, including:

  • Assisted Living Centers
  • Daycares
  • Country Clubs
  • Food Halls

How It Works

Set Aside Compostables

After we consult with you to understand the scope of your desired composting program, we arrange the pickup schedule that works for you. We are TRUE AdvisorTM certified and can plan as robust a waste diversion program as you want. All pre-consumer compostables are acceptable. We can also take post-consumer waste, in some cases. Contact us for more information!

We’ll Manage the Details

Everything you need to collect the compostable waste–step cans, compostable bags, and outdoor bins with airtight lids (so no foul smells to worry about)–is provided by us. We leave you a clean bin and fresh bags at every pickup.

We’ll Report Your Impact

After every pickup, we calculate the pounds diverted from landfills and report the diversions, methane emissions avoided, and compost created. This makes it easy to broadcast your accomplishments to your customers and inspire your team.

Commercial Composting FAQs

What type of containers do you offer?

For our commercial services we typically use 55-gallon drums, though container selection is part of our onboarding process.

How often do you collect my compost?

As part of your onboarding, we consult with you to determine a pickup schedule that works for you. In most cases, we collect no more than twice per week.

What happens to the compost you collect?

We take everything we collect to a compost facility, where the food waste is mixed with vegetative waste to become compost.
