October is always a scary month for composting facilities. Calm weather conditions, temperature inversions and the beginning of fall rains can lead to an increase in spooky odors and odor related complaints. Fortunately, our state-of-the-art, Aerated Composting System (ASP) is helping to ward off the odor goblins. Our ASP system went online in February 2019, and we’ve been running the system ever since.
While it is impossible to operate a composting facility without producing some odors, the ASP system allows us to control the key composting parameters (Oxygen, Moisture, Temperature) thus allowing for better process control. Microscopic organisms and fungi all help break down the organic matter in the compost pile and turn yard debris into high-quality compost. Warm, well aerated bugs are happy bugs and happy bugs produce less odors.
If you would like to take a tour of our state-of-the-art compost factory and watch our happy bugs in action, please call our office and make an appointment. You can also see the transformation of our facility by watching these short Garden Time segments:
