How it’s Made:

When yard debris arrives at our recycling centerdropped off by either individuals or landscaperswe check the material visually and if any inorganic material is identified it is removed by our ground staff. To begin the composting process we grind the yard debris to reduce the size of the organic material then place this material in windrows; after the initial composting is complete the compost is moved to a curing pile until the material is ready for further refining; at this point the composted organic material is screened to the size we require then dropped onto a conveyor belt traveling under a vacuum system (using the Airlift Separator) where any residual inorganic materials such as plastic or landscape fabric remnants are removed.

We process over 2.4 million cubic feet of yard debris each year in Lane County and occasionally some inorganic material such as plastic film and small pieces of landscape fabric materials or even hard plastic make it through our process without being detected. You can be assured however that this would not inhibit the growth of any plant. If you are looking to purchase a planting soil or soil amendment which does not include any recycled organics please contact us for recommendations or if you would like more information on our composting process.
