Is your compost safe for vegetable gardens and farms?
Yes, our compost is completely natural, produced at high temperatures and finely screened. It’s also regularly tested for nutrient content, organic matter, pathogens and more, as part of the Seal of Testing Assurance (STA) Program by the US Composting Council. It’s used by farmers for certified organic production and many residents in the area for vegetable gardens.

How does the Food waste collection work?
If your business wants to be more sustainable and start recycling food scraps, you can sign up today and for a small fee, we provide 64-gallon carts, liners, we train you and your staff and we pick up food waste from your business. We can create a pick-up schedule that fits your needs and help you reduce landfill space, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and put those nutrients back into Michigan soils.
Do you accept metal or wood from decks, fences, pallets or 2 x4s?
We cannot process treated wood, as it contains nails and chemicals that prevent a proper breakdown process. We do not accept any material that isn’t compostable including plastic, metal, and glass.
