Salinas Valley is one of the largest agricultural regions in the United States, producing large quantities of bagged leafy greens. With the introduction of California Senate Bill 1383, Salinas Valley Solid Waste Authority (SVSWA) was searching for a cost effective way to keep organic waste, namely packaged food out of their landfill. Recognizing the huge regional market for fertilizer and cost-effective nature of compost, SVSWA went out to bid for an Aerated Static Pile (ASP) composting system to complement their operating landfill.

“The soil is delicious! I mean just look at it! And the planter beds are so deep. We're spoiled to get to start our garden with such amazing soil. However, I have worked really hard for that compost. It's well worth it though. The soil gives me as much pleasure as the vegetables growing in it.”
