Yard trimmings composter moves into food

Yard trimmings composter moves into food

BioCycle 40(5): 70-72

The evolution of Seacoast Farms in New Hampshire, USA, from composting yard trimmings into processing of food residuals is described. The company collects and composts food residuals and soiled paper, stored in compostable and biodegradable bags, from a private school and is now moving into servicing grocery stores, a brewery and other generators. The material is composted for four and a half months in windrows and then is screened and cured for around six weeks.
