Facility Operators

Members of the Maine Compost Team are available to assist facility operators from the ‘pre-planning’ phase of their composting operations through discussion of marketing options of the finished compost.  While attending the week-long Maine Compost School will provide a compost facility operator with information on the biology of composting, development of recipes, and field trips to active composting facilities, sometimes what is planned or tried works as well as hoped, and quality compost is not being created.

Through the experience of the Compost Team, we can work with you, the facility operator, to identify and clarify the issues impacting your operation and recommend alternatives to improve the compost being produced.   Whether the issue may be the challenges of identifying or obtaining a possible feedstock, to challenges with the composting process itself, we are available to help you understand the difficulty and work with you to correct it.
