Composting creates better soil, traps greenhouse gasses, and saves water. A “locally grown” business, we are located in Annandale, Virginia, and handle food waste pick up from residential and commercial customers within the Northern Virginia area.  Compost Livin’ and our customers are helping to make the DC metro area a greener and more sustainable place to live and grow!
