Long Island Compost is Long Island's leading provider of organic materials, services and products.

Long Island Compost was founded over 30 years ago by Charles Vigliotti (center) and his brothers, Arnold (right) and Dominic.

Each year, Long Island Compost recycles hundreds of thousands of tons of leaves, grass clippings and other landscape-related materials generated by Long Islanders. The company also plays a critical role in developing organic, earth-friendly solutions to the region's most daunting environmental challenges - including the remediation of the Peconic Bay and vital South Shore waterways.

Over 30 years ago, the company was founded by Charles, Dominic and Arnold Vigliotti. Today, they employ more than 150 men and women and operate the nation's largest yard-waste transfer station in Westbury, New York, and a 62-acre facility in Yaphank, New York. It is at these transfer stations that more than 2,000 landscaping companies come to drop off organic materials, which the company later harvests into compost. These transfer stations represent an environmentally sound answer to the region's organic waste problems.

In addition to providing the public with a wide range of organic lawn-care products sold at garden centers and national retailers, including Home Depot, Long Island Compost maintains a substantial Municipal/Professional/Bulk division. Through this division, the company creates custom
