Welcome to Target Organics – A Compost Program Resource Hub

To support organic waste diversion from disposal to compost facilities, the Target Organics Hub is a resource to help build food scrap composting infrastructure and implement programs across the United States.

By providing the tools and success stories, composters and communities can use this hub to plan, attract, open, successfully run compost facilities, and market the compost that is produced. After all, compost is an essential ingredient to healthy soil.

Our mission is to empower the foundation of life on the Earth, healthy soil! By spreading awareness and know-how, communities can start reducing landfill waste and methane emissions, starting here!


Collection Program Evaluation and Ongoing Education

After the program has launched, there is a need to continuously evaluate the following metrics to determine the success of your program. A little more detail on each of these continuous evaluation metrics are described below:


Marketing Use

Marketing finished compost is important to make money for the organization, make room on the pad for new feedstocks, and maintain good community relations with both the facility and the industry. When the public values the final product, compost will be the gold standard throughout the cycle, for both disposing of organics, and as a soil amendment. A good marketing plan for compost must demonstrate the benefits of and applications for compost to compete successfully with other soil products in the specific areas it will be sold and used.
