We adhere to the Best Practice Standards set forth for the composting industry based on the science of bio-degradation and the needed time periods and temperature shifts to maximize the development of beneficial micro-organisms that make our composts truly remarkable in their role as soil amendments.
There are no short cuts at AgRecycle. Neither "hot rot" nor "passive stockpiling" are methods employed in our process.
Throughout this optimal process of beneficial decomposition, all compost feedstocks are monitored for oxygen, moisture, and temperature while being mechanically turned when precise readings are achieved. As such, it takes us between seven and eleven months to manufacture, screen, and cure each batch before we feel it is ready to market.
All AgRecycle composts are manufactured in accordance with both Pennsylvania's and the EPA's permitting requirements for composition, monitoring and product stability.
Our composts are agriculturally classified as soil amendments that positively impact soil structure and soil nutrition while enhancing plant growth and imbuing the soil with increased organic matter.
Our compost soil blend is a planting ready medium for all plants, trees, shrubs and seeds.
Our mulches help retain moisture around your plants, deter the development of weeds and cosmetically enhance all planting areas.
We manufacture tailor made blends per specific customer requirements.

Single shredded and triple shredded bark mulch
Primarily used for weed control and moisture retention around ornamentals. The bark mulch sold by AgRecycle is NOT from trees deforested for this use. Our mulch is a byproduct from trees that are used in the manufacturing of furniture and flooring. $26.00 per cubic yard, single shredded and $40.00 per cubic yard, triple shredded.

This is the only product that AgRecycle manufactures that is of limited availability and sells out rapidly.
