Saving Organic Material From Becoming Landfilled
Over 50% of all materials being sent to landfills are compostable. These organic materials have the power to restore our soils and benefit our atmosphere when composted. When landfilled, these same materials directly contribute to greenhouse gases that are polluting our air and contributing to climate change. AgRecycle's organic diversion services prevent compostable materials from becoming landfilled waste and transforms them into beneficial soil amendments to rejuvenate American soils from farms to your backyard.

The Power of Composting
Americans generate more solid waste than any other population, and an overwhelming majority of this waste is sent directly to landfills. Unfortunately, Pennsylvanians are among the most wasteful.
Sadly, over 50% of landfill waste is compostable material that could have been used to renew our nutrient-deficient soils. Instead, it’s creating larger landfills that deplete the ozone layer, adding harmful emissions to an already polluted sky (cars aren’t the only culprit).
Diverting compostable materials to AgRecycle shrinks our pollution burden and restores one of our most strained resources - soil. Using compost that has been produced with scientific best practices improves the physical, chemical and biological properties of soil. This means healthier plants, more nutritious edible crops, and soils that can support more American-grown crops.
