January In-Person Meeting: Co-located with USCC's COMPOST 2018 

Join us for our next in-person meeting in January to discuss topics such as: on-site pretreatment systems, data quality, and get an update on what the Composting Collaborative has been up to. 



Pretreatment Technologies

Dehydrators, biodigesters, liquefiers, and accelerated composting systems are proliferating and have benefits that may help food waste-generators meet commercial organics bans. We're diving in to the topic to shed light on trade-offs and to explore successful strategies for implementation.


State Organics Recycling Snapshot Study

In the first industry exploration since 2014, the Snapshot Study is answering the question "who's composting and where?"


Compost Sampling "How To's"

Lab results are only as good as the samples you provide. To ensure that you're building a rock-solid foundation for feedback on your compost quality, we're building "how to" videos showing everything you need to know, developed by industry experts at the US Composting Council.
