Alliance for a Greener South Loop

We are greener, together.

Urban Outdoor Composting

People who have access to a yard, a gangway, a garage, or a common area in a townhome or condo association can do composting outdoors (with appropriate permissions, of course)!

There are a number of outdoor composters right here in the South Loop. We can put you in touch with them if you have questions. Email:

In the meantime, here are some resources to get you started.
