Our Composting Process

Step One: Raw Material

We bring your organics to our composting site and add them to an existing pile, being careful to keep the right proportions of green and brown material.

We turn the piles to introduce and increase oxygen, add water to keep a consistent moisture level and help the organic matter to break down more efficiently. Then we screen our finished compost product to remove any contamination or materials that didn't finish breaking down.

Our nutrient rich "black gold" — better known as compost — enhances the value of West Michigan fields and landscapes, reusing our precious resources and keeping them out of the landfill.

Step Two: Water, Turn and Screen

Step Three: Finished Product

Where are your organics really going?

When you put organic waste in the trash, it's probably headed to a landfill, where it will produce methane, a potent greenhouse gas. 

When you compost with Organicycle, you know your organic waste is being responsibly recycled by a local, family business, benefitting our entire ecosystem.
