Frequently Asked Questions

It is our mission to make the death care process as straightforward and as gentle as possible.

Can I buy a Precompose human composting plan if I live in a state where human composting isn’t legal yet?

Yes, you can join Precompose for your future human composting from anywhere in the U.S. While we currently have one facility in Seattle, Washington, we plan to open more locations across the country. You will be composted at the closest Recompose facility.

Transport to Recompose will need to be arranged and paid for, most likely with a local funeral home, if you do not live within 30 miles of a future Recompose location. We are happy to help you coordinate transportation and answer any questions. If you live outside of the U.S., please contact us at [email protected] and we will be in touch to help you plan.
