According to the US Composting Council, in 2005 an estimated 245.7 million tons of municipal solid wastes were generated in the United States. That’s 4.5 pounds per person per day! Organic materials comprised of yard trimmings, food scraps, wood waste, and paper and paperboard products are the largest component of our trash. They make up about two-thirds of the solid waste stream.
AgRecycle is working to reverse the growing trend of expanding landfills through responsible organic waste disposal. We use organic materials to create nutrient rich compost that can be used on farm fields and even your own vegetable garden.
For businesses like restaurants, manufacturers, landscapers and construction professionals, AgRecycle provides solutions that reduce your disposal overhead costs. It can also help you achieve higher “green” standards for your business.
