How to Start a Compost Business?
(Kansas City, MO)
I live in Kansas City, MO and I'm interested in starting a composting business using mainly food waste. I am currently looking into grant money, and any other types of funding through the government to see if there is money available. I have a possible business partner with a 40 acre lot available which the business could run on, although it's far from Kansas City. I am currently researching as much as I can to see what it would take to get up and running.
Does anyone have any advice?
