Speaker | St. Louis Composting

Valley Park, MO | pgeraty@stlcompost.com

Founded St. Louis Composting, Inc. in 1992 in response to Missouri Senate Bill 530 which established solid waste disposal reduction goals. Prior to founding St. Louis Composting, I owned and operated a landscaping company for 12 years.

In 2010, I founded Composting and Organics Association of Missouri (COAM). As President of COAM along with fellow composters throughout Missouri, we work together to increase the quality, value and usage of recycled organics in Missouri.

St. Louis Composting is an active contributor to and enthusiastic emissary of the “full circle” movement. We donate compost and time to various civic organizations as well as regularly participate in eco-themed educational programs and public events. My long-standing commitment to responsible management of organic materials provides a unique perspective and experience of the solid waste industry in Missouri and I hope to continue to provide input and advisory guidance to the Missouri Solid Waste Advisory Board.
