From the lowly mushroom to high up on the rooftops, Compost Supply has found quite a few applications for their products over the years. Their first foray into compost was to provide Campbell’s (yes, that Campbell’s) with a mushroom growth medium; most recently, they became the licensed regional blender of rooflite® soil for eco roof systems. What has remained consistent over that more than three decades of evolution is their steady commitment to creating a quality product. And as the variety of available source fractions has grown, additional effort and attention has gone into making sure the ratios and mixes still result in a valuable outcome.
Heather and David Mayer were running a healthy sand pit business on their 44-acre Texas property just northwest of Fort Worth when they had an epiphany. “We knew the day would come when we would no longer sell sand,” Heather explains. “But, maybe there was a different option to just backfilling and moving on. We realized there were other possibilities for our land.” And while that day still has not yet come, the results of their diversification are already well developed.

Like most commercial compost operations, when Waddell-Wojeik Trucking opened their Land Management Compost facility more than 20 years ago, they really had no idea what they were doing. Composting is one of those practices that seems so straightforward at first, but becomes much more complicated once you get into it. But after years of trial and error, research, refinement and expertise, Land Management is now a thriving operation producing upwards of 20,000 yards of very high quality compost annually. Sterling Waddell, General Manager for Land Management Compost, sums it up perfectly. “It talks a lot more work to make a yard of compost than anyone thinks.”

The northwest quadrant of the lower peninsula of Michigan is one of the more beautiful places one could visit in this country. Just outside of the Manistee National Forest near the city of Cadillac lies the tiny town of McBain. This is the home of Viking Energy, an 18MW energy plant powered by renewable biomass fuel. While most of the fuel used at the McBain plant comes from forestry byproducts, a meaningful percentage of that fuel is supplemented with used railroad ties that are brought in from around the Midwest.

Back in 1801, Horry County, tucked in the northeast corner of South Carolina near Myrtle Beach, somehow managed to lay claim to more land than any other county east of the Mississippi River. One of the manifestations of all that real estate in 2014 is that this large, mostly rural county generates a ton of yard and organic waste, nearly 30,000 tons per year to be more precise. And with a philosophy of ‘recycle first’, the county’s solid waste authority have the vision to build a composting facility more than twenty years ago.
For the last seven of those years, Bill Hilling has served as director of the Horry County Solid Waste Authority, and the composting facility falls under his management. “We try to recycling everything we can here,” Hilling explained. “And that includes organics. We take in roughly 25 to 30 thousand tons of yard waste per year, and rather than putting it in the landfill, we transform it into compost and sell it back to the market. This facility is very well thought of in the community.”

Alternative energy is a concept tossed around very regularly these days. With so much negative focus on fossil fuel-derived power, attention is very often directed to wind or solar resources as a means of generating a sustainable and renewable energy supply. Clearly, no future energy strategy can do without these important options; but another power source is often overlooked, and somehow seems to continually fly under the general public's radar: energy derived from waste (EFW). Even with a highly efficient diversion of recyclable materials from our waste stream, America still produces mountains of garbage, and that garbage has a significant amount of potential energy trapped in it.
Detroit Renewable Power, a subsidiary of the Detroit Renewable Energy consortium, is one of the hundreds of facilities around the country that are transforming our trash into power every day. "Our EFW facility processes up to 3,300 tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) every day," explained John O'Sullivan, president of Detroit Renewable Power. "That trash becomes a refused-derived fuel which is burned to create more than 600,000 pounds of steam every hour." A portion of that steam is then directed through their facility's turbines, generating nearly 70 megawatts of electricity; the remaining steam is fed into the city's steam loop, helping to heat and cool more than 140 buildings in the downtown and midtown area.
Aggregate Recycling Corporation has accomplished something most don't often succeed in doing: they do many things well. ARC got its start in 1987 as a soil recycler, but smartly positioned themselves to capitalize on the wood and organics recycling boom that began in the late 1990s. Most recently, ARC opened a tipping floor to accept an even wider range of materials, from mixed C&D to concrete, brick and even MSW. "We now run a transfer station to collect incoming waste streams," explained John Doherty, CEO of Aggregate Recycling Corporation. "We manage a single stream recycling process, diverting the MSW to landfills and the recyclables to their various relevant processing facilities. But the organic and aggregate materials we receive get processed on site here."
Much of the organic material that ARC receives is comprised of demolition wood, green waste and other wood waste products. Their sourcing team has spent years building a broad network of relationships with contractors, waste transporters, landscapers, municipalities and other larger institutions, and regularly has a high-volume supply of these materials to process. With such a wide range of processing needs, ARC requires a full stable of equipment to perform the various reduction and sorting work necessary to add value to these waste materials.
