COMPOSTING & DISPOSAL PROCESS
First – we offer a conveniently located facility equipped to safely dispose of and recycle a variety of organic waste, including yard waste, food waste and municipal waste. Our new facility in rural Lincoln County localizes organic waste recycling within a hundred mile radius of our site. Local businesses and municipalities are encouraged to use our facility for safe and ethical organic waste disposal.
Second – we employ a natural and energy-efficient process that creates nutrient-rich compost to build healthy soil products that can be used to restore the soil nutrients and organic matter for a family garden, yard, or landscaping project and as well, assist in building soil for both organic and traditional farming.
Our compost is also ideal for erosion control in both farming and construction activities. Our product is specially filtered to meet a range of needs, from dressing delicate lawns and fairways to providing a soil amendment for construction projects.
Barr-Tech utilizes ECS Systems technology for odor free aerobic composting that is all natural and chemical free. Our system is specially designed to conserve all resources, including water, nutrients and heat. We carefully monitor temperature, moisture levels and gas emissions to ensure the process is efficient and self-contained. In addition, our new facility has produced numerous green-collar jobs for northeastern Washington’s economy, providing the opportunity for our valued employees to make both a living and a difference.
Using compost is a smart and environmentally responsible way to support healthy soil, because it supplies the organic matter and valuable nutrients that plants need to thrive. Compost also improves soil structure to support healthy root growth and increases water holding capacity and penetration. In addition, utilizing compost helps to stabilize the pH environment of soil and its ability to store and cycle nutrients for future vegetation.
