Peels and Wheels Composting LLC

Peels and Wheels Composting LLC, owned by Domingo Medina, works with New Haven and nearby communities to collect garbage for composting, and works with communities to promote and facilitate solutions for the composting needs of local residents. When Domingo first moved to New Haven from Venezuela, he wasn’t inspired by anything that resided in New Haven. By conducting research on how the city burns trash and handles their sewage water, he discovered an opportunity and passion to start a composting business.
