Compost Cache Valley

Curbside composting and glass reycling services for your home, business, and events.

 Our Story

Anthony and Rachel co-founded Compost Cache Valley in February 2019.  They moved to Cache Valley for Anthony to study sustainable agriculture systems and soil science at Utah State University.

They did not have access to convenient composting options as they lived in an apartment.  They quickly realized that many of their friends and co-workers also did not have the option to compost.  

Compost Cache Valley started with a single curbside composting service subscription.  Since that first subscription, the CCV team has:

  • Added many more households for curbside composting service,
  • Offered curbside glass recycling service options,
  • Included events, and 
  • Launched a Drop Off Program through the Cache Valley Gardener’s Market.

Anthony + Rachel

Anthony and Rachel are committed to reclaiming essential soil nutrients by diverting compostable materials from the landfill.

When they are not working with Compost Cache Valley, you can find them at their day jobs, walking their dogs – Mowgli and Felix – hiking, and skiing throughout northern Utah, at a local cafe, or at the Cache Valley Gardeners’ Market.
