Our Site


Feedstock is shredded, mixed and put into windrows.

Feedstock Shredded

Over a period of approximately 12 weeks, the windrows are turned regularly to manage odours and distribute heat to help regulate temperature, moisture and oxygen content.


Screening the compost is the final part of the process. Contaminants such as metals and plastics are removed and the compost is graded for its various end uses. It is also at this point that any materials that are still too large will be put back through the composting process.
