O-Town Compost- Charlie Pioli
I got to spend a lunch break with Charlie Pioli, who comes from a career in solid waste & recycling consulting and has witnessed the egregious waste being generated and poorly managed around the country firsthand. Spurred to action, he started O-Town Compost- Orlando’s community composter to give his neighbors a sustainable option to recycle their food scraps.
Charlie and I spoke about how he started O-Town Compost- and the issues Central Florida has with our current landfill. We spoke about him starting a subscription service and the work on educating the community. We talked about the importance of mentorship and collaboration. Charlie discussed how he started and how the business has grown and his advice on starting something.
Charlie shared a promo code BANANAPEEL for $24 off when you sign up for O-Town Compost.
