Where does Recompose have human composting facilities?

Recompose is located in Seattle, Washington. We plan to open in Colorado in 2023 and California in 2027. Our intention is to continue opening more locations as legislation changes across the country.

Our Seattle location offers a space for friends and family to gather and contains the vessels where bodies are transformed into soil. Learn more.

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.
