Isla Vista Compost Collective

 Our Story:

Isla Vista Compost Collective (IVCC) is a community composting initiative focused on providing access to composting in the Isla Vista community. The IVCC’s mission is to promote sustainable waste management and resource recovery by diverting organic waste from landfills and transforming it into valuable soil amendments. 


The IVCC offers a reliable and free composting service to Isla Vista residents, who can either sign up for our food scrap collection service, or drop off their food scraps at our community composting sites. IVCC then transforms the food scraps into high-quality compost through composting, which they sell locally and provide as a free organic fertilizer for community gardens. Their initiative is closing the local food loop, producing fresh produce to nourish the community, while preserving essential nutrients through composting. The IVCC’s commitment to sustainable and circular practices benefits both the environment and the community.
