Organic Recycling: The New "Green" Approach, And How It's Done

Is there a new buzz in town, all about a new "green" approach to waste management called organic recycling? If you want to learn more about this new, environmentally friendly practice and how it is done, read the following.

If It Is Organic, It Can Be Recycled

Simply put, if it can rot, decompose, and be used as fertilizer, it is organic. If it is organic, it can be recycled into something that can be used for other purposes. A lot of people have already been doing this for years, taking their table scraps and turning them into compost. Organic recycling is extremely similar, except that it takes composting to a whole new level. 

Large organic recycling companies are paying people in incentives and rewards points to bring anything and everything organic to the plants. These organic recycling plants then separate the organic materials into specific batches that will produce mulch and fertilizer in varying degrees of pH levels. When these specific batches rot, decompose, and break down, they are ground down into usable garden and farming products. They are tested for the correct pH level so that gardeners and farmers can get the right kind of mixture to use in their gardens or fields. 

How to Participate

Search for an organic recycling company near you. If there is one not too far from where you live, you can collect all your organic materials into a container — preferably one with a lid so that any decaying material in the bottom does not cause odors in your home. Request a weekly pickup from the recycling company or take the bucket(s) to the plant yourself. Some plants have customer entrances where your buckets are emptied and returned to you along with your incentives or incentive points for that week. 

After your collection or drop-off, the employees in the plants will do their best to separate the various organic materials according to the type of fertilizer or mulch each little bit can make. It is a painstaking process that requires excellent organic item recognition skills, but most of the employees have received extensive training on the subject. The rest occurs inside vats holding the various materials inside the plant. You can bring your organic stuff to the plant as often as you want or keep a scheduled pick-up date each week. If you choose the latter, you can cancel or pause your contributions whenever you need to.
