 Natural Awakenings Lancaster-Berks

Wise Owl Compost Offers Compost Collection

Wise Owl Compost, the first business of its kind to launch in the Lancaster area, is now accepting new clients for residential and commercial compost collection services in Lancaster, Leola and Lititz. Each year, U.S. landfills and trash incinerators receive 167 million tons of garbage which consists of approximately 21 percent food scraps. Wise Owl Compost’s goal is to reduce the amount of compostable organic materials from entering the municipal waste stream by providing convenient overnight collections for homes and businesses on a weekly or bi-weekly schedule, many for less than $1 per day.

Business owner Julia Dougherty is a local foods enthusiast, hobby farmer and advocate for regenerative agriculture. Prior to starting Wise Owl Compost, Julia worked in both the agriculture and landscaping industries, and her most recent full-time position was on the grounds crew at Franklin and Marshall College where she was the first woman in the school’s history to work full-time in any trade.
