Recycled organics compost - economics
Recycled organics are compostable organic materials, including garden organics, food waste, residual wood and timber. Compost made from recycled organics is derived from shredding and stockpiling these green materials for up to six months before being screened to remove contaminants and create a compost high in organic matter, essential nutrients and beneficial bacteria.
Compost is an efficient method of quickly reintroducing organic matter to vegetable cropping systems.
There are many economic benefits of recycled organics compost including:
● Greater water infiltration
● Higher nutrient holding capacity
● Increased organic matter
● Lower bulk density
