Biosolids can be made into compost

We Turn your Waste into Compost (Fertilizer)


After the poop and food has been “digested” in digesters we call it biosolids. We send it to another location. To make compost or fertilizer, we add grass and tree clippings from parks, as well as horse bedding and horse poop from stables in town.  Then we just let it all decompose. We turn it every three days. That way all of it gets some needed air. It also keeps the whole thing warm.  We screen out sticks and trash before we sell it.




You can make compost too.
