Organic Waste Disposal Solutions

Composting not only reduces the environmental impact associated with waste disposal but also yields high-quality compost.We continue to increase our composting efforts through investments to expand capacity at our existing operations and through the acquisition of new facilities. The benefits of these actions extend beyond waste diversion.

Reduce greenhouse gas

When organic waste decomposes in landfills, it produces methane, a potent greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. Diverting organic waste from landfills helps mitigate these emissions.

Cost savings

By diverting organic waste from disposal and implementing composting systems, businesses can reduce waste disposal fees and potentially generate revenue from the sale of compost or biogas.

Innovation and efficiency

Investing in organic waste management technologies and practices can drive innovation and lead to more efficient resource utilization within a business.
