The seeds of RoHo Compost were sown in the Green Mountains of Vermont, where founders Marc De Konkoly Thege and Alireza Vaziri met while studying at Vermont Law School.
RoHo has since relocated its operations to New York City, the garbage capital of the world, but our mission has remained the same: offer a service that helps businesses and communities to implement environmentally sustainable waste management systems while also saving money.

Marc and Alireza were eager to help with the implementation of Vermont's universal recycling mandate, which requires all organic waste to be diverted from landfill-bound waste streams to recycling and/or composting facilities. In engaging with local business owners, they found many were apprehensive about the law’s potential impact on their operations, and especially about how the new mandate would effect their bottom line. It was then that RoHo Compost was born.
