Mark started composting in 1986 when public works never made it to pick up leaves on his parkway. He successfully composted the pile of leaves and has been hooked ever since. Mark has composted over ten thousand pounds of food scraps and ten(s) of thousands of pounds of yard trimmings! Mark has been in the Green Industry since 1994 and has been a full time Organics Recycler since 2014.
Trimmings are taken from your garden bin, shredded and returned to an available bin to complete the composting process.

The compost season starts in early Fall with available leaves/carbon added to the bin as a base.
The season ends the following Fall when the bin is emptied, and the material is processed.
The bin has been filled with landscape trimmings and food scraps throughout Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer. Because of active composting and settling, the bin was filled multiple times.
The organic material is mixed, shredded and screened.
The material is placed in a garden or bed.
Water maybe added to the material if needed.
