Learn more about CERO

Founded by working class African-American and Latino entrepreneurs from Roxbury and Dorchester, CERO Cooperative creates green jobs, sustainability, and worker-owners in our communities. To date, CERO has recovered more than 2.4 million pounds of organic materials from incinerators and landfills.

CERO Coop is Boston’s only worker-owned commercial composter, ensuring clean, responsible and reliable commercial composting solutions, as well as re-earthing of food waste for local agriculture and providing green jobs in Boston’s underserved neighborhoods.

To expand green jobs and support women-owned, people of color-owned, and community-owned businesses, Boston-based diners can encourage Flames, Bon Me, and Legal Sea Foods to partner with CERO Coop for their composting solutions.
