Other products we make from green waste

We make 4 other products from the green waste we collect. All these composted products are tested as a minimum for:

  • pathogens
  • potential toxic elements
  • physical contaminants

The soil improver grade material is also tested for weed seed germination and plant phytotoxicity.

All grades of compost products are available for agricultural use.

This is administered by Operations and Transport. It involves a consultant calculating the target application rate based on nitrogen. A contractor then works with land managers to identify suitable fields and grades, delivers and spreads compost.
