Food Waste Composting
Landfill Farm to Table logo Greenville County is partnering with local company Atlas Organics in operating upstate South Carolina's first commercial food waste composting facility. Atlas Organics collects food waste from a variety of commercial facilities and is now transporting those materials to the Twin Chimneys Landfill. Once at the landfill, the food waste is mixed with mulch produced by the landfill from yard waste received from Greenville County residents. Using forced aeration technology, the mixture is windrowed for approximately 45 days during which moisture content and temperature are monitored to ensure proper organic decomposition. At the end of the windrow period, the compost is screened and sold as a soil amendment. This process exemplifies the Farm to Table to Farm cycle.
