Compost Company Promotes Green Environment

On average, Americans throw away 44 percent of their yard trimmings and 90 percent of their wood waste. But Chesterfield Farms is working to put a green edge on those statistics with its organic recycling.

Chesterfield Farms is a supplier of ECOsoils growing media for planting, green roof applications and bio-retention purposes. The company accepts yard debris and trimmings, brush, grass clippings, and limbs up to 8 inches in diameter from municipal contracts, private contractors and landscape contractors.

With growing concern over the environment and a national drive to go green, owner Alan Boehm sees some trends emerging in the movement. “There will be a stronger emphasis in all areas of recycling to divert these materials away from the landfill,” he says. “Compostables are one of the final frontiers of the recycling process, and the East Coast of the United States is a driving force.”
