Where does Recompose have human composting facilities?

Recompose is located in Seattle, Washington. Our Seattle location offers a space for friends and family to gather and contains the vessels where bodies are transformed into soil. We offer virtual ceremonies for those who are not able to join us here in Seattle.

About a third of clients come to us from out of state. If you live outside the Recompose service area, our team is available to answer transportation questions and help with logistics. Learn more about our services.

Land Acknowledgement
Recompose acknowledges we make our lives and livelihoods on the lands of the Coast Salish People, specifically the Duwamish People. We honor with gratitude the Duwamish People past and present, the land itself, and the Duwamish Tribe. Colonization is an active, persistent process. Indigenous communities continue to be resilient in protecting their ecological and cultural lifeways and deathways despite ongoing oppression. Recompose respects, shares, and supports this commitment to climate healing and environmental justice. Join Recompose in contributing to Real Rent Duwamish.
