The Process

1. Disposal

First step to making sure organic waste does not end up in the landfill is making sure organic waste is thrown into an organic waste collection container. Therefore, knowing what would be compostable is essential.

2. Collection

Once service day arrives, material is collected and transported to one of our facilities to begin processing the waste to be composted.

3. Composting Facility

Our state-of-the-art composting facility can receive organic waste and convert it into compost within 10 weeks.

4. Kerman’s Best Compost

After the 10-week process, the compost goes through a filter screen to produce right-sized compost ready for use!

Facility Profile

Compliance Friendly

Our advanced technology rates as one of the most compliant friendly in the State of California. Our modern system and process called in-vessel, Covered Aerated Static Pile Composting or (CASP), produces compost in 56 days while protecting the environment. By covering and sealing in greenhouse gases throughout a three-phase process, the process preserves air quality, and diminishes the potential for odors. The system captures the wastewater, and we can reuse it to eliminate any waste or discharge into the environment. All of this is done while producing clean, usable organic compost on a timeline that is much quicker than traditional composting can offer.
