Commercial Composting Services for Dallas Businesses

From Big Tex to the Cowboys to Reunion Tower, Dallas is as iconic as it gets among American cities. A town like this that marches to the beat of its own drum is the perfect fit for a new, better way of dealing with food waste from commercial activities.

Our commercial composting program helps Dallas businesses…

  • Bolster and broadcast your ESG efforts
  • Reduce your ecological footprint
  • Benefit your community

Get in touch with us today to start the conversation about composting at your business or organization in Dallas.


Facilities We Serve


Whether you’re churning out Texas barbecue or vegan fusion, we can collect your pre-consumer waste, as well as post-consumer waste in some cases.


If you have multiple employees eating one or two meals and/or snacking throughout the day, that food waste adds up and becomes a potential source of beneficial compost.

Schools & Colleges

There are 38 colleges in the Dallas Metro area and 230 schools in Dallas ISD, each one a candidate to funnel its food waste from the cafeteria to the compost pile with our help.


Thousands of patients, doctors, nurses, and staff generate food waste every single day across Dallas hospitals that can and should be diverted from landfills.

In short, we want to partner with any site that generates a large amount of food waste that will inevitably end up in a landfill, such as:

  • Assisted Living Centers
  • Daycares
  • Country Clubs
  • Food Halls
  • Event Centers (paging Jerry Jones!)

How It Works

Set Aside Compostables

We consult with you to determine the size of your desired composting program, and get you on 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. In certain circumstances, we can take post-consumer waste, too. Contact us for details!

We Pick Up Your Food Waste

We provide everything you need to collect the compostable waste, such as drums and outdoor bins with airtight lids (so no foul smells to worry about). Each pickup, we leave you a clean bin.

We’ll Report Your Impact

We calculate the pounds diverted from landfills with every pickup and can report these diversions, methane emissions avoided, and compost created by each collection. So your Dallas business can show off its efforts and inspire your team, your customers, and all your stakeholders.

“Moonshot has been a great partner by helping us reach our Net Zero goals…”

“For over two years, Moonshot has been a great partner to by by helping us reach our Net Zero goals in a very tangible way. We now compost 100% of the appropriate waste from the two restaurants on our Houston campus, diverting all of it from the landfill. At the same time, this program is helping our culinary team become more aware of how they can minimize all waste. The compost we receive from Moonshot is used in our community vegetable garden, the vegetables used in our kitchens, the waste composted, the compost used in our garden…”

What Happens to Your Food Waste?

Call us nerds, but we think it’s really cool how spoiled food and leftovers can become a valuable commodity when given enough time and a place to relax. Where is that, you ask?

Your Moonshot collections are transformed into compost at commercial composting facilities, after which it finds multiple practical applications.
