Welcome to BioBag’s Community Heroes series! Each month, we will highlight community heroes that are making a difference in their communities and working to make their local environments cleaner and healthier.
This month, we are taking a look at Mr. Fox Composting!
Mr. Fox Composting started over ten years ago with a goal of providing composting service along the New Hampshire and Maine seacoast. Since then, they have steadily grown as a company, expanding commercial and residential programs, hiring more drivers, adding new trucks to their service, and implementing new technologies to increase efficiency. They also provide composting services to events such as weddings, company fundraisers, school field days, and have a shop full of eco-friendly products. We spoke to Commercial Operations Manager Jenny Humphries about Mr. Fox Composting. Her interview is transcribed below.
What led you to start your composting operation?
Jenny: I have always liked composting. I enjoy the simplicity of it especially in these complicated times. Compost has so many uses, and watching our soil be used to grow great products is exciting. Additionally, seeing how we have a direct impact on our community shows how much we can make a difference is huge!
Who do you serve, and how can people get in touch with you if they want to start composting?
Jenny: We currently service the New Hampshire Seacoast and Southern Maine. People can learn more about Mr. Fox’s residential services and commercial services by visiting our website at mrfoxcomposting.com.
How much organic material do you typically take in on a weekly basis?
Jenny: We probably take in multiple tractor-trailer loads worth each week. Our fleet [of trucks] hauls and processes it all too!
Please give us one fun fact about your business.
Jenny: I’ve been working with compost for over 20 years and Mr. Fox Composting has been in business for over 10 years!
