McGill recycles organic wastes to make premium compost products

What McGill CompostsWhat McGill composts is biodegradable materials sourced and harvested from municipal, industrial, agricultural and commercial waste generators.

At our facilities, we process source-separated, non-hazardous organic materials from all kinds of sources — municipal, industrial, commercial and agribusiness sources.  From biosolids to food waste, this feedstock variety results in high-performance compost products packed with macro and micro nutrients.

We can also set up temporary facilities on customer sites for bioremediation of soil and water, on-farm disease outbreak and storm or disaster clean-up.
