How Dirt Wain Began
Passionate about making our region cleaner & healthier
Dirt Wain's journey to becoming a leader in composting and sustainability began in 2019, when we started out with nothing but a homemade bike cart and a dream of making our region cleaner and healthier. With hard work and dedication, we've come a long way from servicing just 6 households in one neighborhood.
Today, we proudly serve more than 10 municipalities—composting their food scraps, yard waste, and pet waste—thanks in part to our unwavering commitment to the environment and our excellent customer service. But no matter how much we grow, we'll always stay true to our roots and keep working tirelessly to make a positive impact on the world around us.
What Moves Us
Here at Dirt Wain, we are all about building a strong, supportive community that is committed to environmental responsibility and sustainability. We understand that composting is more than just a way to reduce waste—it's a powerful tool for combatting climate change. That's why we're dedicated to bringing composting education and resources to as many people as possible, and fostering a culture of waste reduction and reusability. We believe that when we all work together, we can make a real difference for the planet and future generations. Join us and let's take climate action together!
